|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
B&F No.: 1566
Although this species has figured in early literature as a species found in the British Isles, it is considered doubtful that it has ever occurred naturally - a picture clouded by the apparently-liberal manner in which early entomological dealers made this species available.
This species was first defined in Linnaeus (1761) as shown here (type locality: Sweden).

Another beautiful butterfly. Nicely presented....although details and sharpness aren't up to the mark. In my opinion here butterfly is looked better either decentralized placement or just crop it vertically. Color is very nice too....
Thanks for sharing,

A new butterfly for me and a gorgeous one at that. Love the rich colors and sharp focus you managed to obtain. I at first thought the colors may have been a little over saturated, but I looked at other photos of this particular butterfly on the web and see they really are that brightly colored. Great job!!

Wonderful sharp shot of this Purple-edged Copper, a species I'd love to see. Beautiful colours and nice composition.
