Very close indeed, but not a good angle on the butterfly to show the insect at it's best. You needed to be a bit more side on as this is quite difficult to sort out visually. The lighting has added to the effect a little with the brighter light being on the edge when it could have done to have been on the eye.

It is very good nevertheless and is maybe what you wanted to show apart from the text on the wings which completely spoils it for me.

You did well to get such a close shot of the butterfly, Rana, but there are two things that let the image down for me. The background and the shadow.
The background is quite fussy and distracting. There may not have been an alternative, but maybe if you had shot more from the left, that branch would not be within the frame?
The strong shadow goes right across the wing, and I can only suggest choosing a time of day when the light is less bright, in order to avoid this.
I realise that you have to photograph a butterfly in the wild when you get the chance, and the conditions and location are not always your main concern. Getting the shot is your priority. Time is also of the essence, shooting before the butterfly flies away.
So, you did well under the circumstances.
Insect photographers often recommend taking pictures in the early or late hours of the day when your subject will be less active. Here is a tutorial on insect photography which you might find useful.
