[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I think it's Scarce Copper from Lycaenidae family
Lycaena virgaureae (LINNAEUS, 1758)
Description: Wingspan 26-36mm. The upperside of the forewings is copper coloured with small black spots and a narrow black band along the outer margin. The hindwings are dark brown with a coppery band close to the hind margin. The underside of the forewings are coppery with small black spots; the hindwing is pale brown with black dots. Females differ from males in being larger and slightly duller.

Very nice colored photo with pretty butterfly in it :)

Amazing close up, really sharp and well composed.

bonjour rimantas
bien que le orange de la fleur prenne un peu le dessus,la netteté est bonne sur le papillon.
bons details et jolies couleurs et beau BG.

Hello Rimantas
I am astonished with the beauty of this image! What beautiful colors and composition! Excellent sharpness, lighting, POV and DOF.
However this is no Lycaena virgaureae, but Polyommatus bellargus :)
Congratulations and thank you very much for sharing.
Best wishes
