Very pretty, I like the DOF and light. It seems a bit over-sharpened, but still a very pleasing image.

to me, the butterflies seem overly processed or sharpened or something. They have an almost illustrative quality rather than photographic - kind of like an Andy Warhol painting type quality. Great title though.
