Tiny beauty

 photo IMG_7353_zps8d6775e7.jpg
With its wings closed this butterfly is about a half-inch (1cm) across. Its small size explains why it is relatively unknown (by me at least) despite being one of the most common and widespread butterflies in the northern hemisphere. Our field guides call it the "American copper," but "common copper" might be more accurate.
Lycaena phlaeas.
