Large Copper (Lycaena dispar subsp. rutilus)

Observation - Large Copper (Lycaena dispar subsp. rutilus). Description: This small but stunning butterfly was seen towards the end of May around the banks of a shallow river near grassland in the village of Hotnitsa in Bulgaria. I believe it is another copper but would appreciate any help in the full ID.
