[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Large Copper (Lycaena dispar) is a butterfly of the family Lycaenidae.The insect has a wide range occurring throughout the Northern Palearctic ecozone north to the middle taiga zone (Euro-Siberian region).This is one of the butterfly species classified as a priority for protection and re-introduction in the UK under its national Biodiversity Action Plan. The species has been in severe decline in Britain due to the great reduction of fen habitat due to expansion of the human population. In the rest of the Western Europe, the draining of wetlands and building and agricultural activity on shallow riverbanks has caused a strong decline. In Eastern Europe, undeveloped riverbanks and deltas are a habitat for the species, though even there it is somewhat threatened due increasing human influence on these areas.

Hi Pawel.
Pictured butterfly has a very nice coloration and you have reflected it with all details. Stems and bud in the frame are a fine supplement for the main subject. BG is also great. TFS and warm regards.

Ciao Pawel. One of my favourite! Beautiful colours for the male of L. dispar. Excellent details agains the blurred BG despite the difficult POV. Best compliments.
