Hi Amal,
Good work with your Canon. I always want to see photos taken with Canon compact or bridge, because I use a SX110 IS. They really are very yielding its kind! I think the POV is very appropriate. The approach is very good, though I disagree a bit of light over the white markings on the wings of a butterfly, perhaps a 1/200s have been more appropriate.
