It looks great. Very well captured. DOF, POV, BG... all details are in their special place. Congratulations.
You have taken a high quality shot of a Morpho butterfly of which there are several species, all from South and Central America. Yours is Morpho peleides. Morpho wings used to be used for jewellery, using glass to cover parts of their shiny wings. As the blue colour of the wing scales is produced by light refraction and not pigment, it does not fade.

This is the king of the butterflies. I've seen them in the rainforest of Tobago this summer. You caught this one very well. Its a flying wonder! Marvellous colours. TFS.

Great work of art you have here! Very nice picture of this little butterfly! Composition is very good, the colors are very beautiful and the light perfect! Excellent defocused BG to show the butterfly with razor sharp details! I've always wanted to photograph a blue butterfly but never had the chance! An outstanding job! TFS!

Your exposure has accurately captured the beautiful colour of this butterfly. Good composition. My eye keeps being drawn to that light flower top left, though. Could be cloned out?

Great shot of this beauty! I agree with Argus - it is a Blue Morpho/morho peleides, range Mexico to COlombia & Venezuela, and Trinidad.
