Bonjour Eric,
Un point focal magnifique et une superbe profondité.
De mon goût personnel je ferait une decoupage autour de la partie central.
Je vous offre un WS pour illustrer ce que je dis.

Hi Eric,
Good focus and DoF, I like the colouful BG

Hi Eric

A great shot. Sharp, attractive colours, good exposure and a depth of field that stops the background from competing with the subject. My only criticism is the composition. I think the image would be a little more interesting if the butterfly was on a line of thirds, if some of the left hand side was removed.

Hi Eric,
What a beautiful sharp and colourful image. Cropping off on the left and also a little at the top will, in my opinion, further improve the composition. Well done.

Hello Eric, a lovely mix of colours with good light management.
The bokeh is beautiful too.
I agree with Robert that the butterfly might look better not so centrally placed, but still a great shot.
Regards Jean.

Hi Eric
This is an interesting image because of the natural looking colours and shallow depth of field, plus the pin sharp focus on your beautiful subject.
I agree with the composition issues mencioned before, however this photo has many atractive qualities and I would like to see a repost of it with better composition.
