Beautiful shot... the flower petals' saturation is a little loud causing blurry-ness.

The butterfly wing color is beautiful and realistic. This appears as if you caught it in mid-flight, maybe even in breezy conditions!
The color of the flowers are too much for me. Did you use a 'vivid' type camera setting for this? (IMHO, the vivid setting is wonderful for everything that is not already nearly-unnaturally colored.)
Keep at it!!!

Great detail in the butterfly, the detail is lost in the flowers some & they are a little bright but good entry & capture for basic editing!

You nailed the Monarch right on the intersecting lines and the bonus is the flowers its just come from are on the right hand vertical

A little oversaturated

Good color! Too abd the butterfly's wings caught in midflight do not have that classical butterfly shape. But still really awesome catch!

Very pretty. The bright lantana is a compliment to the butterfly and a nice contrast to the green of the leaves. It does seem a bit out of focus though. Not the deliberate area in the background, which is fine, but some of the area to the right. The colors make it very appealing. With spot on focus, this could be a real winner.

I think the position of a butterfly would have demanded a bit different composition. The pic would please my eye more if the butterfly would have located down right and there would have been space to its movement on the left. But I like the colours and an atmosphere of this photo.
