One day earlier I got some poor shots of a Copper on a blooming field. Not enough to be sure enough to determine the species. Was it a Large Copper (Lycaena dispar) or a Purple-edged Copper (Lycaena hippothoe)? Hitting the same field again I’m now confirming it was the latter one, the Purple-edged Copper.
I finally got good shots on a male whereas the day before it was a female flying. The male, with its purple-edged shimmer on the wings, made it quite easy to get clarification on the species. Here’s some photos of this rather small but incredibly beautiful creatures.
