It is a fascinated thing to observe the way insects and flowers have a fellowship together. A kind of marriage. Here the bill is hanging on the flowers tongue. Maybe they are kissing?
I have used Graphic Converter. From the original scanned picture I have sharpen the edges with 48° (normal) and 2.40 gamma corrections.

Nice capture, fine detail. Is it worth to give it a strongerfocus ? See WS.

I'm not a fan of flower photos, but this one is very original in it's composition. I like a lot the positioning of the flower and the great DOF.
I think Neat Image could help to remove the noise.

I didn't see the ladybug in the thumbmark. Good thing I opened it. Very well seen. If it were the flower alone, not much learning would have been gathered ... but with the lady bug ... a story is woven. Positioning of the flower is appropriate. Grains may or may not be distracting depending on the viewer but could be toned down in PS or Neat Image.

I like the flower and beetle, but the background is particularly nice - the colours and the sharpened grain. Well composed. You could have cloned out some of those dust specks.

Your DOF here is really great! the colors are amazing and the detail of not choose a centered composition was a great choice. Just could be bit less noisy..anyway amazing composition!

Very nice picture. the WS of Jack and Jose are other view of the same flower. It's difficult to say which one is the best. As you do not put some comments we do not know your primary idea to de-center the flower.
