You've caught the butterfly brilliantly, I didn't actually touch that (apart from sharpening the image).
I felt the background was rather busy so, I rotated the butterfly slightly and cropped closer. Then I cloned out the white (top right and by the flower - though looking at it, I may have been a little heavy handed!). I adjusted the levels, did a little burning and blurred everything but the butterfly - this is what I ended up with. I hope you like it!
Great image lots of detail and vibrant color. I also like the mod Karen has done.
You have got the angle of plane of the camera pretty well in the right position to the subject- this is always important for this type of shot to ensure as much of the subject is in focus as possible.
As Karen has said the colour levels needed adj as did the sharpness and she has done that.I am sure you can see the improvement.
In the white area on the LH wing however you have a blue tinge - I would select that area and reduce the blue a little.
One thing I would suggest regards taking the shot - if you know that butterflies are going to pitch regularly on flowers it would benefit you to try to tidy up any background distractions before taking the shot.I find clothes pegs handy for holding back stems/leaves etc. Not always possible but if it is it saves a lot of PS work.
Hope that may help.
