Focus issue?

Hello -

I'm new to macro photography.... I'm playing around with my new Micro Nikkor 105mm 2.8 G ED on my D850 and I feel like some of my shots are unusually shallow.  I understand that macro lenses have an even shallower depth of field than usual, but as the shot below shows, it is but a sliver of the object. Is this due to the fact the lens is not fully parallel to the object?  Or might there be some adjusting I need to do?

Exposed @ ISO 2500 1/200 s F/4.2

NEF RAW photo is here .

Thanks in advance for your help. Sorry for the newbie question.

Nikon AF-S Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED VR Nikon D850
