Copper Butterfly

Motif:

Found this little one in our garden. He wouldn't sit still for more than a few seconds so it was a wild hunt. It belongs to the Copper Butterflies or (Latin: Lycaenidae; German: Bläulinge) which are also known as Gossamer-winged Butterflies. More details on them can be found on Wikipedia.
