[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The male Scarce Copper is a strikingly beautiful butterfly with his vivid, solid orange upperside which is very conspicuous in flight and helps to locate him as he's whizzing around! The undersides are very characteristic with the white splodges in the post-discal line. The female upperside is much duller and very spotty. Despite its name, this butterfly seems quite common in upland areas over about 1000m. Females are seen more rarely.

Hi Rimantas,

Good presentation of a colorful butterfly on white flowers. Contrast of the rgeen background emphasises the red. Tfs ali

Hallo Rimantas
The colour of this butterfly's feathers are just so spectacular! Wow what a beautiful species this is, and the delicate flowers are just as pretty. Thanks for sharing a lovely macro. Best regards.
