Such a BEAUTY!
Very good composition with the green of the wings of the butterfly and the enviroment!
Very good details and sharpness!
5* photo!

The colors are simply amazing. Nice composition and placement. It is sharp and I think you might have gotten a bit more dof but it is a minor nit. Very well done.
