Glade Copper

I saw one of these beauties in my garden yesterday (not my photo). It's exciting to think they are living and breeding here; their young feed on muehlenbeckia, and I have some of that growing. I found this description of the larvae:
"It has it's legs and head covered by fleshy side flanges (giving it a Woodlouse shape), it appears to have a slow slug-like movement."
Not so glamorous as the parent!
