Like this; lots of detail when viewed full size and a nice blurred background, one small point the image would be improved by having the sharp focus extended to include the flowers and the butterfly. there are lots of Hyperfocal distance apps that can help with shots like this.
That aside a well taken shot

A good head on shot of this lovely tortoiseshell butterfly, viewed full it shows some good details on the wings. Well taken.

I am very, very new to commenting on images .. lucky you, your image is my first!! I do like your butterfly very much. I feel that the background, even though blurred, is pulling my eye away from the butterfly. Perhaps cropping away one row of the flowers, the top triangular blur and a tightish crop on the left and right will give the butterfly "centre stage". sweaty palms!

Nice to see a view of the underside of the wings, makes a changer from the usual top shots.
Agree With Cheryl on her suggested edit, as there are some background distractions that just tempt the eye away from the main subject.
However I still like the 'head on' pov very much.
Well done.

Thanks everyone for the comments - but Steve I have to admit being somewhat bemused by yours.
The butterfly is sharp.
I fully understand hyperfocal distances, DoF etc and have done since 1960.
I don't use apps on my PC only on my W8 phone.
But hey! thanks anyway for bothering to comment.

Frank sorry I'm late on this - can't add any more to the great ones above except to say what a lovely colourful cheerful pic !
