A fine image of superb quality. Those attempting NH close up should look at this and learn.

Its obviously quite unique which adds to attractive aspect of the shot. Its technically very good, though I would suggest a couple of small changes, as loaded in the second mod, marked the "real mod"

It looks like you have increased saturation way too high overall to bring out the insects colours, so perhaps desaturating the green background and plant top while leaving the butterfly's is a better approach; some of the highlight detail is washed out in some wings, so toning this down with the highlight tool in CS4 provides more detail in the wings.

Hope this is helpful,
