Small copper (Lycaena phlaeas) - female
lovely capture of this beautiful butterfly.
Nice pov, good dof,nice colours,
captured with good details,
bg is a bit distracting,
well composed in general however i like centered composition for shooting butterflies against the general preference.
I have posted a workshop and hope that you will like my kind of compo too.
tfs & regards

it could be a Lycaena phlaeas, small copper female, but I'm not sure.

a brilliant and sharp picture of Lycaena phlaeas (no doubt). You captured the colours of the butterfly very well, starting from the orange forewings to the faint green/blue metallic reflections on the hindwing bases. Your picture just underlines the characteristics of this small Lycaenidae.
Best wishes, Peter
