Overland Park Arboretum and Botanical Gardens (120 hectares / 300 acres) is a relatively new arboretum and botanical garden located a mile west of U.S. Highway 69 on 179th Street, Overland Park, Kansas. It is operated by the City of Overland Park, and open during daylight hours.
The arboretum includes mature trees and limestone bluffs, with almost 5 miles of trails and two bridges across Wolf Creek, a major tributary of the Blue River. The first garden was dedicated in 1996. As currently planned, the arboretum will be developed over 20 years, with nearly 85 percent of the site set aside for natural ecosystems. The remaining property is earmarked for gardens, buildings, etc.
It was founded to keep the city at the forefront of environmental and ecological issues. A leader of environmentally sound community development, the Arboretum is an educational, recreational and cultural resource for the Kansas City region.

Focus looks good, colors are beautiful and contrast nicely with eachother and the background is blurred out wonderfully to draw all the attention to your subject!

I suggest your intention was to show the butterfly in its beautiful environment. You succeeded perfectly here. The flower butterfly symbiosis is not distracted by unnecessary things - both are very isolated and as Matt said 'draw all the attention to your subject(s). Beautiful light and colours.
Best wishes, Peter
