Purple Hairstreaks

Female Purple Hairstreak

Purple Hairstreak underside.
o.k. I know they are 'nt the best of shots,and very heavily cropped, but I was dead excited to find a small colony of Purple Hairstreak Butterflies at a local woodland nature reserve. I ve not seen them before so had to try and get a couple of record shots ( a long lens, hand held looking up into the tree ) If we get another sunny evening soon I'll go have another look.
