I like it! I think the colors are great, and I like the bokeh going on in the background.

I like the contrasting colors (purple and yellow) in this image.

I'd crop out a bit more of the left and right sides, and possibly rotate the image 180 degrees or flip horizontal, as I keep thinking the image was upside-down. By cropping more towards the center, you eliminate that pink at the top-left and the foliage on the left, bringing more attention to the butterfly.

Flipping the image horizontally will make the butterfly appear to be standing on the flower rather than hanging from it. Also, seeing as I read from the top down, the butterfly would be the first thing to catch my eye, rather than the flower.

i don't mean to be the one to critique this in the wrong way but i just think that the big patch of pink up there is sooooo distracting! a nice composition beside that
