Hello Tina,
Very nice photo of this butterfly. Sorry, can't help you with the ID. Beautiful colours, great sharpness and a nice blurred background. Taken from a very good POV.

Hi Tina,great surprise from this early springtime! A very rare specie,a beautiful nettle-tree butterfly ( Libythea celtis ),never seen by me in my country.Great capture with perfect exposure and fine details too,very very well done! Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Tina, your butterfly is Libythea celtis, the Nettle Tree Butterfly. This species is unusual in that it hibernates from late summer until the spring of the following year, relying on its "dead leaf" shape and colour for camouflage. The lighting is very attractive, and the smooth background complements the butterfly very nicely. It's always good to see the first butterflies of spring.
And Luciano beats me to it as I am typing :-)
Best wishes,
