    FacetEyePhotoover 3 years ago this looks very similar to this shot of a Lycaena Plebejus Argus. They are found wordlwide with slight variations in saturation of color and size of the dark ring. Males and females look quite different.

    Lovely shot!

  • Wow!
    It certainly looks like the one.
    Many thanks, I shall update my images of this little beauty.
