Beautiful sharp shot.
I might be tempted to crop out the top third avoiding the dark out-of-focus bud that pulls the eye away from your subject

Another beautiful shot Merille..the light on the butterfly wings is just right. The soft background works very well too.

This is beautiful! I agree with John, I was going to suggest a crop too, but I was going to say off the right hand side, for the same reason! You have caught the butterfly perfectly though, I love those eyes!!
