    Butterfly's are tough. It's a trick to catch them still enough to photograph. Has any processing been done here? If not, and you have the RAW file, maybe a touch of sharpening.
    Nice catch!

    Sadly, I was an idiot that day and had the camera set to shoot jpg. I agree though, a little sharpening would be nice. I did post process the file a hair, I enhanced the contrast and saturation just a smidge. I didn't do anything drastic, since its just a jpg and didn't want to make the compression artifacts become more apparent.
