    For me, the background is a little too bright and saturated which makes it distracting.

    Torn butterfly wings are quite common. I often find spring butterflies, which have survived the winter, to have so much damage that I wonder how they manage to fly.

    For me, there are a number of reasons to photograph butterflies. Identification is just as good with damaged specimens; and some that are really damaged have a bit of character. But yes, when going for a perfect result to hang on the wall a good condition subject is needed.

    And, like you, I sometimes don't notice the problem until I look closely at the image on my computer screen.

    I don't know that it makes it any less of a worthy subject though. It certainly shows the delicacy and vulnerability of the creature.
