I think it's funny everyone mentioned the flower looking fake. It *is* a plastic flower. In a museum display. This is a very dead bug. I can't get this close to the real ones!

Nice coloring, though the contrasts may be improved a little. Good composition.

The flower overpowers the butterfly a little. 6

It is actually the flower in your shot that I really like, it almost looks fake, nice combination, good job.

the butterfly is almost lost, overwhelmed, by the passion flower but the color balance is interesting
it would have been good to throw the background even more out of the image - a black card or some such , or brown?

Like a swatch of suede on a plastic flower. Nice capture, but the colors just don't contrast enough to give your butterfly a lift.
