[Note Guidelines]
I think it's from Lycaenidae family
a Ringlet Butterfly Alhantopus hyperantus. The cream coloured ringed eye-spots from which the butterfly gets it's common name, really make identification of this butterfly quite easy.
Feed mostly on bramble blossom and grasses, and winter is passed as a caterpillar. Size is 19-21mm, flying normally between June and August.

Nice picture!
I like the composition, seeing the butterfly inside the flower really direct our attention on it. DOF is great, only the butterfly and the main flower is sharp, the rest has a beautifull blur. And colors are great. TFS

Nice Lycaena alciphron / Purple-shot Copper /Violetter Feuerfalter oder Violettsilberfalter / Le Cuivr Mauvin ou Le Cuivr (Argus) Flamboyant / Violette vuurvlinder!
Good capture ; In the Netherlands we don't have this species!
This one is a bit damaged, maybe because he was almost caught by a bird!
