Photographer's Note

Male Scarce Copper (Lycaena virgaureae). Male butterflies are colored bright gold-red on the upper side of wing, while the females have broader orange wings with a dark design.

Scarce coppers can be found from Central Europe to Mongolia. In Finland their area of distribution reaches the Arctic Circle. They fly in summertime, eggs survive through the winter. They live preferably on flower-rich, dry and damp meadows, and especially like my mother's daisies!
