Hi Alan. Striking colours and a strong link between flower and insect.Great light and a nicely cropped image. Well done. Regards. Klaudio.
You're right: one doesn't usually associate the Small Copper with camouflage, but some butterflies vanish if the colour of the flower is right. This looks like an Asian subspecies, the outer dark border of the forewing being almost divided by lines of orange.
Nice capture from a good POV and the neutral OOF BG allows both it and the orange flower to stand out.
Thanks for sharing this one,

A beautiful capture of this orange copper. Yes it has perfectly chosen the flower resembling its body color. Excellent composition and details. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Just looking at all your beautiful butterfly shots and this one caught my attention most. Those colours are simply beautiful! It is a perfect match indeed. Your depth of field is just perfect and good amount of light. The dark browns of the background balance the brightness of the subject quite well. Lovely textures I can see in the butterfly's wings and also in the softness of the flower petals. Well done!
