Thanks to Laszlo Kaposvari/ Hormon_Manyer /this is Peacock Butterfly.
The Peacock (Inachis io) is a well-known colourful butterfly, found in temperate Europe and Asia. It is the only member of the genus Inachis. The species is resident in much of its range, often wintering in buildings or trees. It therefore often appears quite early in spring.
The butterfly measures about 5 cm (2 in) from wingtip to wingtip and is easily identified by its striking eye pattern on a ruddy background, although with wings closed the cryptically coloured underwings make it look like a dead leaf.

The species on the pic is not the Small Tortoiseshell (Nymphalis urticae), but the European Peacock (Inachis io), very very different.

Hello Mr.Rimantas,
I have no idea of different type of butterflies.To me it is a beautiful picture with nice sharpness and colours.Blurry BG helps here to concentrate on subject.
Thanks for sharing,
Kind regards,

Hello Rimantas,
beautiful capture of a very nice species. The point of view is perfect for keeping the whole butterfly sharp. Contrast is strong but pleasant, with an unobtrusive background. I like the composition.
Well done, Philippe.
