Beautifull capture my Dear :-) And great title, too. I like these fragile butterflies, they're easy to capture on flowers, but I never had got them on my hand. Colours, POV, details - all look great. Very summer picture.

Very good marco shot!
Perfect on details and colours!
It's a Lycaenidae. I guess it could be a Lycaena dispar (Haworth, 1803), known as Large Copper in english.

Great song, Joanna. Great picture!
A male of Lycaena dispar, a rare butterfly, extinct in some parts of Europe as in the UK, comes right on to your hand! Unbelievable, and very beautiful. Wonderful colours and details, perfectly focussed. And a perfect background, too, not only for the very appealing story. Some butterflies are very fond of sucking sweat to fill their demand of minerals. At least one thing by which the common but beautiful species of Homo sapiens is definitely useful to other beings in nature.
Thank you for that very charming contribution!

I haven't looked at your portfolio for a while - and see I've been missing some great new shots. This is really excellent - the details are wonderful, and I think the light color of the hand has helped get a perfect exposure.
