Lycaena tityrus - family Lycaenidae.

Pictture presents one of the most common butterfly from Lycaenidae family. It's rather small butterfly - the wingspan is about 30 mm. It's very easy to find it early morning on the bushes or grass when it spent the night. Sometimes it's possible to find few of them sitting on one plant.

This is the male - the female is more orange and also very nice. Butterflies preffers dry, sunny places like waysides, forest borders and meadows.

The caterpilars can be found in on Rumex spp.

Another great shot! Very sharp and clear details.

Hallo Chris,

Very nice picture! Colors look natural and the two green leaves help composition a lot. Good detail and exposure as well! Congratulations!

Two excellent pictures of this Lycaena (Sotguldvinge) which is totally absent in Sweden. If the winds blow in the right direction one day perhaps they'll cross the Baltic as they are so common in Poland!
Thanks, Ulla
