    I agree with Mark. This is a female Eastern tiger swallowtail. Unless you were shooting with some really orange sunlight, this seems over-saturated.

    Other than that, I really like it. The composition is interesting with the intersecting lines and sky. Good use of DoF. Nice positioning to get the whole wing and the whole body. Maybe a tiny bit of motion blur on the close wing, but whatever.

    Where in CT?

    I think it would have stood out more with a darker background.
    I see you're using a ring light. Can I assume the 100mm is a macro?
    If so, you might benefit from a tripod. If you used one, then remote shutter and shutter release delay could sharpen things up quite a bit for you.
