I really like the idea Chessmaster has with the moving wings. I think using a complete different background all together is easier than cloning in the empty spaces of the wing cut-outs. Great idea for an Avatar too.
Hope you don't mind me trying this out. I think your butterfly shot looks really nice.
Did the whole thing in PS CS6 using the 3D tools to warp the wings into a different perspective each frame. Added a Fresco filter to make the butterfly match the background a little better.
I did this when first learning to use animation shop. using any bg will work, but I've never tried this in ps cs5. (as is much easier for me to use).
