The male Scarce Copper is a strikingly beautiful butterfly with his vivid, solid orange upperside which is very conspicuous in flight and helps to locate him as he's whizzing around! The undersides are very characteristic with the white splodges in the post-discal line. The female upperside is much duller and very spotty. Despite its name, this butterfly seems quite common in upland areas over about 1000m. Females are seen more rarely.

Hi Rimantas.
Attractive low and a bit back POV and very nice composition of the shot at whole. I like impressive combination of bright lights and shadows and nice reproduction of the small flowers and beautiful butterfly. TFS and best regards.
Alexei.
