Hi Monika,
I thought as you were trying to do something different I'd have a go too :-) This is something I learned from motorsport photography. I quite often tilt the camera at an angle when taking the shot, just to add some impact. It's really important to balance the background though, especially if there are trees or buildings there. I tried to maintain a balance here between the main plant stem and the line of the ground behind, as they are the two prominent parts of the BG. Small plants and grass on a hillside often grow at angles so the growth on the ground is not a problem unless it is tilted too far, when it starts to look unnatural. So with that in mind I rotated the image until the plant stem was almost upright and the horizon line wasn't too steep. The rotation puts the dizzy Butterfly a bit more upright and also adds some interest. This is best done when taking the shot, it's interesting to move the camera around and see what you can see. Hope this is helpful.
