Butterfly 2

I took this picture awhile ago and it can be seen at http://michael.aminus3.com/image/2006-07-23.html. I decided I would try removing the color except for the butterfly's color. Input on which you like better would be great.

This new version's pretty cool. I would have toned down the colour that remained though. Reduce the saturation by about 30-40%. With everything else in B&W, just a little bit of colour on the butterfly would have done the trick.

@Aaron Schmidt: Hey Aaron,
Thanks for the advice. I'll try it again with a little less saturation.

Nice experimentation. However I think the shot would've generally be better with the butterfly off center :)
