I love the angle, whether it is implied or real is immaterial. I works well and the sky makes for a wonderful contrast.

The angle is real Tim, the original sky was grey and bland,

Think it works very well, the two almost butterfly-shaped clouds blend in with the image. Very creative work.

As commented by others replacement of the sky works really well. Photoshop I presume? Peter

That's quite innovative, Alan. The perspective could be seen to make the butterfly look huge and impressive; of course, the flower head gives scale, but it's a different and very effective image. I'm never sure about sky replacements, but it definitely works here.
Excellent work Alan, great image.

A great viewpoint, which frames the butterfly against the blue sky, and dominates the scene.
