Thursday is Butterfly Day Giveaway: Week 10. Butterfly Scarce copper / Бабочка Червонец огненный

2년 전
Today I will show another butterfly photographed at a summer cottage in July 2012. These flowers of pink thistle attracted a lot of insects. Of course, we were interested in beautiful butterflies. Сегодня я покажу ещё одну бабочку, сфотографированную на даче в июле 2012 года. Эти цветы розового осота привлекли очень много насекомых. Нас, конечно, интересовали прекрасные бабочки.
The brightest among them was this butterfly. Самая яркая среди них была вот эта бабочка.


I, as well as others, tried to identify butterfly with the help of the Internet. I suppose that it is the Scarce copper (Lycaena virgaureae). This is a butterfly from the family of Lycaenidae. Я также, как и других, попробовала определить с помощью интернета. Предполагаю, что это Червонец огненный (Lycaena virgaureae) или многоглазка огненная. Это бабочка из семейства голубянок.
These butterflies have a pronounced sexual dimorphism. In my photo the male Scarce copper. Females have not so bright wings with a pattern of spots not only at the edges, but also in the center. У этих бабочек сильно выраженный половой диморфизм. На моей фотографии самец червонца огненного. Самки имеют не такие яркие крылья с рисунком из пятен не только по краям, но и в центре.


The undersides of the wings are paler with specks. Нижняя сторона крыльев более бледная, с крапинками.


The Scarce copper is found on the greater territory of Europe, is absent only on the Iberian Peninsula. The species is common in Asia, Siberia, the Far East, and lives in the Caucasus. Червонец огненный встречается на большей территории Европы, отсутствует только на Пиренейском полуострове. Вид распространен в Азии, Сибири, на Дальнем Востоке, обитает на Кавказе.
In Moscow, these butterflies began to meet less and less, and in 2001 the species was listed in the Red Book of Moscow. В Москве эти бабочки стали встречаться всё реже, и в 2001 г. вид занесён в Красную книгу Москвы.


The time of flight of the Scarce copper: mid-June - August. So it is not surprising that we met her in July. Время лёта червонца огненного: середина июня - август. Так что не удивительно, что мы встретили её в июле.
Very beautiful bright butterfly. I took a few photos and then I stood and just admired the Scarce copper until he flew away. Очень красивая яркая бабочка. Я сделала несколько фотографий и потом стояла и просто любовалась червонцем огненным, пока он не улетел.

A lovely Papillon my dear friend!
Great shots!


Thank you!

What a bright beauty! The male butterflies always seem to be the ones. with more color. I know firsthand that butterflies sure do love thistle flowers. What is the Red Book of Moscow? Endangered species? Thanks for using #butterflyday tag @eto-ka! : )


Thanks you!
The Red Book of Moscow is an analogue of The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, but for plants and animals in Moscow.
The status of this butterfly - 2nd category - a rare species in Moscow with a decreasing population.


I figured that was what the Red Book of Moscow was. How cool is it that you were able to find a rare species but I am sorry to hear that it has a decreasing population. Thanks for the info! : )

Love the colors!

They are really beautiful.
