Butterfly colored pencil drawing

I especially enjoy drawing with colored pencils. My style is realism and photo-realism.
Below i am sharing a step by step drawing of a Blue Morpho butterfly. I am using Prismacolor premier and Derwent Coloursoft on Stonehenge 8x11 paper.

Step 1 - outlines and base color

Step 2 - defining the shadow areas and adding more layers of color to achieve a depth effect

Step 3 - adding more shades, in accordance to the reference photo i am using

Step 4 - adding some of the background details 

Step 5 - more background added 

Step 6 - working on the background and refining the details on the butterfly. Once the background is added, i can see better if the butterfly needs more work or deeper shadows 

The finished drawing
