It's the butterfly from family Lycaenidae but species I can't set ID.
Thanks for ID. Now I know that is
The Purple-Shot Copper (Lycaena alciphron) is a butterfly in the family of the Lycaenidae or copper butterflies and in the genus of the Lycaena.
The coloring of the males and the females is very different, i.e. the sexual dimorphism is very strong. The top sides of the wings are red-gold with black spots. The males fluoresce purple, while the females' top side is brown, also with black spots. The rear wings have submarginal spots.
The caterpillar is nocturnal and eats Sorrel. The fully grown butterfly eats wild thyme, ground-elder, and blackberry flowers.
The Purple-Shot Copper can be found in Europe, Morocco, and Turkey in heights between 500 and 900 meters.
This butterfly migrates from June to July.

Piękne ujęcie zamgleńca!
Przepięknie uchwyciłeś te cudowne kolory i niezwykły POV. Może kadr jest zbyt ciasny ale osobiście sama często tak kadruję ;-)
Gratuluję zdjęcia
