Interesting setting-the butterfly seems to work well in black and white. The details really stand out.

I’m not a B&W guy in general, and especially not for birds or butterflies. Your comp is totally counterintuitive to me. Yet, with the shadows on the wall and the graphic bug wing, I find this a really interesting picture!
Good light,

I like the B&W rendering and the composition, the shadows add a nice graphical element.
I wish the wall didn't have the texture I see - looks like noise.

A smashing shot - the shadows mimicking the main star/perch lines are just a treat

All the best
