Hello Chandra,
Beautiful photo in an excellent composition. Great clear and contrasting colours. Very sharp details. Good POV and dark BG.

Hello Chandra,

Well composed and good color tone/sharpness!
I like this natural color tone as well as this colorful and beautiful butterfly. And, the contrast between the front and the background with blur image draws it out a good effect in the whole, I think.
