Green Hairstreak

Green Hairstreaks seem to have had quite an extended season this year. I’ve been finding them since early May. Our only green butterfly. A photo doesn’t quite do them justice. The iridescence on the wings is something quite special.

Haring into the Vehicle

On the Mull Tour earlier in May of this year we were watching a family of Stonechats from the vehicle when an interloper flew in through one of the windows.

This was one of a couple of Green Hairstreak Butterflies we saw during our time on Mull. I thought it looked a little different to the ones I’ve seen in Norfolk, perhaps a little browner and a little cleaner cut which begged the question does Mull harbour a different subspecies? Having referred the matter to Greg my local Lepidopterist, who’s knowledge of these things far exceeds my own, a subspecies on Mull is not known.
