Comma butterfly on some bright foliage almost loses your subject matter. I think this would have been much better closer up, in sharp focus (it is quite unsharp) and with a square crop. Had you waited for it to open its wings wider you would have had a better shot still.

Compositionally I feel that because of the body language of the Comma, facing right, it needed to be in the lower left hand side, looking up. As it is your LHS is virtually redundant. I have uploaded a mod to show you how I would like to see it.

Looking at EXIF the chosen aperture of f5.3 is insufficient to get sharp focus here so perhaps f8 of f11 with either a very steady hand or a tripod. One other option available to you was to raise your ISO.

There are other shots around of Comma butterflies, (see Page 5 of my portfolio for one) so you can make comparisons.

I hope you find this useful.
