I think you have been very harshly dealt with by the voters for what is to me, an excellent image and very much on target for the challenge.

It may be a case of the "Selective Desat Haters" scoring you low despite the obvious quality of the pic.
The fact that all your comments are positive ones would appear to bear this out.

Good work.

I really like the delective desaturation. Makes the butterfly really stand out.

Nice Edits, for me it makes this picture. I wonder if those are the actual colors of the flowers or if they were edited also. I'd like to know what kind of shrub this is... Very nice focus on the butterfly
