This is a very nice colorful butterfly image Arunas.
Color contrast between the blues of the butterfly and greens in the BG are wonderful.
Composition is very good and so is exposure.
The image gould use a little more sharpness though and the darker spot on the left side near to the wing is a bit distracting.
Nevertheless nice image.
I did rework the image a bit in Photoshop.
Hope you like it.
Kind regards, Harry

Dear Arunas,
the Blues are tough cookies when it comes to photography. Here you tried a shot from the back of the animal, this gives an unusual and interesting perspective. The antennae are hidden and there is a partial lack of sharpness because of f8. Also I suppose the shot was taken free handed, an invitation for the big Macro to tremble. And the antishake mechanism does'nt work under all conditions, variing with the camera models. I hope you will simply try again, you could use a monopod or something for stabilisation, pray for no winds and of all things most, sedated butterflies!
Thanks for sharing your experiences.
All the best to you,
