Hello Pawel,
A superb macro of a species of Copper that I have wanted to photograph for a long time.
This is a female of the rare Large Copper (Lycaena dispar), not L. thersamon that is not found in Poland.
Excellent POV sharpness and lighting and it shows sharply and well against the OOF green BG.
Thanks you for sharing this beauty,

Czesc Pawle!
Widze, ze takze polujesz na motyle tej pory roku, trzeba przyznac, ze choc nie sa tak kolorowe jak rusalki czy pazie, to tez przyciagaja wzrok. Bardzo ladnie "zlapana" pani czerwończyk nieparek. Gratulacje!

Hello Pawel,
a first quality picture of the copper butterfly with respect to composition,
point of view, light, colours and sharpness.
Best wishes, Peter

Hallo Pawel
You have quite a collection of butterfly photos in your gallery. Love the aerial view you have managed to capture of this beauty. Lovely display of patterns and shapes on the wings. You captured this little butterfly in a marvellous pose and made a fantastic shot with a gorgeous composition. I really enjoyed looking at this one. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards

Hello Pawel,
Excellent sharp detailed photo in great clear colours and a fantastic OOF BG. With a little crop from the left side, to get the butterfly more out of the centre, the composition was also perfect. But this is a superb photo!

Hej Pawel/

Hello Pawel,
Beautiful capture of the Large Copper in a fine pose and very sharply in focus. It really stands out from the green background.
TFS and regards, Ulla

Wszystko pięknie tylko to nie jest thersamon - on w Polsce nie występuje ;-)
