|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This female Small Copper came to feed in the early evening and was sufficiently intent that she made a very co-operative subject for a few minutes. I particularly appreciated the colour of the flowers alongside the fiery copper of the butterfly.|
Lycaena phlaeas is an exceptionally successful, widespread species, with the Japanese race named daimio by Seitz in 1909. Its range is spread throughout the whole of the Northern hemisphere.
One of the best web resources for taxonomic data on these insects is here. As this is quite a well known butterfly, I won't copy everything here from Wikipedia or such. I hope you enjoy the picture.

il primo piano della L. phhlaeas e la composizione della foto sono molto ben riusciti.
Anche il dettaglio è buono: si nota, sulla sinistra della foto, un piccolo afide alato.
Mi sono permesso solo di aggiustare la saturazione e il rumore di fondo (vedi workshop).
Spero che il risultato ti piaccia.
P.S. - Per il Polyommatus escheri, ho inserito, come tu mi hai suggerito, una foto (800x600) in WORKSHOP.
Great captured of this lovely Copper in this best pose!
good clarity, vivid colour and so much details
well done and well composed
