I can see why you've cropped it to the size and shape you have as it keeps all of the curved edge of the leaf in view. However, I would have been tempted to crop a lot harder than this to place the butterfly on an intersection of 'thirds' in the image and also to remove the part of the leaf that has a lot of glare from the light. This would focus a lot more attention on the butterfly rather than the leaf.

Hope this is helpful!
