Another shot of Sooty Copper. This time picture presents second generation female. It's rather small butterfly with the wingspan up to 30 mm.

The picture of the male is presented here.

I think it's one of the most common Lycaenidae in my area but I reall like it - I hope also you'll like it ;-D

Hallo Chris,

Very well composed.

Czesc Krzysiek!
Kolejny piekny okaz do kolekcji malych motylkow. Bardzo trudno jest je zlapac z rozlozonymi skrzydlami. Gora skrzydel lekko nieostra, ale reszta ok. Ladna kompozycja.

Hello Chris,
very well describing and aethetically pleasing picture of this rare Lycaenid. Lovely background, well composed.
Thank you! Best regards,

Hi Chris,
it's nice to see this rare butterfly.
Well composed, nice colours and good DOF.
I like the shallow DOF too.
Well done.

The wings are a bit soft in focus, but the body and antanae have great detail.
Good diagonal composition.

Hello Chris,
Very nice color, light, and a pleasing composition.
A soft BG isolating the subject well also.
Good detail seen in the head and antenae, although personally I would like to see a bit more DOF.
Well done and TFS!
