This is wonderful. I like the BG's sweep to the top and right side. The butterfly facing away from the expanse of BG, makes me concentrate more on the beautiful wing's soft colors. Nice.

I'm not sure i wouldn't prefer a crop that shows both thistles, actually. The contrast between dead and live thistles, the fact that the flutterby's focusing on the live one, gives a story line to the image. Plus you have a really nice BG there, may's well use it to advantage. Try some vignetting to focus it in if you do a wider crop.

Good composition with this - the square crop with the thistle off center works really well.
