[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Small coppers are beautiful, lively little butterflies found in most rough grassy places across the UK.

The female photographed here is the blue spotted aberrant form caeruleo-punctata, with lovely patches of blue scales on the hind wings. In Britain this butterfly has up to three adult generations a year, with the first being on the wing from mid-April.

The caterpillars feed on common and sheep's sorrel.
