Lovely looking butterfly with beautiful patterns and colours. Might reduce the brightness of the flower a little bit and possibly enhance the contrast on the wings to emphasize on its patterns and texture.
Just my thoughts... :)

Hey Allen,
A hair more light on the face....and this would be off the charts! Looks very natural on my end....so the position and sharpness is right where it needs to be. Might work on the whitish OOF blob in the OLC....but otherwise very well done!

I also think the flower and butterfly feel a tiny bit too light. A very slight decrease on the petals and a slight increase in contrast in the lower and midtones would probably give it a nice pop off the charts here. Beautiful pose on the butterfly...nicely done!

Good suggestions above for this wonderful image. I might add a bit more contrast the the BF's face.

I know that flower! :D

Allen, some good suggestions have already been given. The only thing I can add is you might try some selective sharpening on the back wing and the antennae. A few simple adjustments and this goes over the top!
