Small Copper Butterfly

I only had my mobile phone with me when I spotted this colourful little butterfly (Lycaena phlaeas) at the allotment gates.
It unfortunately wouldn't pose with its wings flat for any photos which is a shame as it was beautiful, but you can see even the backs of its wings are lovely!
