A Streak of Green

Today I spotted a butterfly I’ve not seen before. I went for a walk at Cors Caron nature reserve and while passing a Bilberry patch I noticed these little green butterflies fluttering about. It turns out they are called ‘Green Hairstreak’ butterflies. They seemed to be very interested in the Bilberry flowers, and each other.

This was my best shot:

The butterflies seemed to spend a lot of their time the other way up though, to get to the nectar in the Bilberry flowers. Looks like I’ve accidentally flipped the image!

And there was some spring fever going on too!
