If you look at the flower behind the fairie's left wing you can see that the perspective would be correct in the arrangement that I posted, unless I am very mistaken.
Looking at them in 3D the top one is inside out.
But we can examine this without looking in 3D. Basically, object pairs that make the eyes converge more appear close and pairs that make the eyes converge less appear far.
Our left eye is looking over at the image on the right and our right eye at the one on the left. Lets compare overlapping wing and flower in the two images.
Compared to the image on the right, in the image on the left the the flower is somewhat farther left than the wing, meaning our right eye has to turn aim left, or converge, more than it does for the wing. And that makes it appear in front of the wing.
Possibly you are one of those rare people who can view non cross-eye pairs, for whom the top version would appear correct. I can't do that unless the images are very tiny.
