Sooty Copper

Subspecies: Tityrus subalpinus

Distribution: Pyrénées, European Alps, alitude 1200-2500m
Habitat: Flowery meadows

With its brown upperside with almost no marks it is clearly distinct from the "Common" Sooty Copper. A butterfly very rarely shown on TN.
I have shown the patterns of the underside wings in a posting of last summer.

Liebe Anne.
Sie haben ein gutes scharfes Foto des Schwefelvögelchens gemacht. Es gibt sehr feine Farben auf den Flügeln des Schmetterlings, weil Sie gut das weiche Licht verwendet haben. Grüße Siggi

Beautiful photo Anne! Excellent composition, wonderful lighting and impressive sharpness! The combination of the dark-coloured butterfly with the white dandelion is fantastic!

Hallo Anne,
schönes Bild, bei dem man gar nicht so recht weiß wer der Hauptdarsteller sein soll. Die Pusteblume jedenfalls hast du fast noch schärfer abgelichtet als den Schmetterling. Tolle Bildgtestaltung, gefällt mir ausgesprochen gut.
Viele Grüße,
