Nice capture of this very common butterfly - we have a lot of them here in Denmark too (Aglais urticae - Small tortoiseshell in English). The colours are very natural - they are not very bright which indicates that it is an old butterfly. The dof is very good showing the details and blurring the background. The composition is good but it would be better if you cropped out some of the top. - All over a very pleasant picture to look at which I cannot say about the note - or should I say missing note.

Nice picture of this Large Tortoiseshell, Nymphalis polychloros. The similar Small Tortoiseshell (Aglais urticae) has a broad dark patch on the posterior (hind) wings.
The details are good, too bad there is a shadow across the wings.
Overall a good job.
