Butta Fly Retouched and Resized

A fellow member emailed me about my previous posting of this shot being way too small. He exposed me me to the proper procedure of posting Jpegs. I took away a major distraction from this image by coloring the large leaf in the foreground, a darker hue. It's still a distraction, but not like it was before. My apologies everyone. What can I do to make this image better?

It's spelled butterfly. Not bad, color wise. If I were you, I'd very slightly desaturate the edges to help draw the eye in. You could also use a slight dark vignette (an easy way is though the filter > distort > lens correction command.

mikedimples, Thank you for your comment, but I am aware of my spelling. I know how to spell butterfly. In the African American Urban Culture, the term, even though the spelling is off BUTTA, and FLY represent anything thats appealing, great, or really nice. So my intent was to have the title be a play on words. So I hope this informs you to look a little deeper before concluding. It can be dangerous operating on limited information. Please be informed. I thank you though, and look at this as a positive. In my book, It's all good, oh darn, yet another slang term. Which means, I'm ok. Thanks

As was suggested, here is an example with a focal point made of the b-fly and a slight edging added.

My apologies! I understand how treacherous it is to suggest that someone's spelling is wrong, so I'll make sure to research the current slang dictionary thoroughly before I post such a malignant correction in the future.
