[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a different angle on the Blue Copper, Lycaena heteronea showing both upperside blue and the underside markings. I gave more notes about the species and the location in an earlier post.

This image has been cropped, resized and sharpened for TN.

hello alan,
nice capture of the blue copper, the flowers look beautiful, both the sides of wings are visible here and offers and idea about the patterns on both the sides, well composed shot,
tfs & regards

Hi Alan
Very nice small buttefly. I like the composition with main object on the right. Sharpness is quite good. Also beautiful vivid yellow surrounding. Unfortunately there are little noises visible - or maybe it is just my screen ;-)
Best wishes

  • Great

Hi Alan. As you say a different POV but it lets us see both the open and closed wings all in the one Butterfly. You have good detail and natural colours. well done TFS.
