Green around the gills

Green Hairstreaks look to be having a good first hatch this year. I wonder if the cooler spring suits them? We watched a pair ‘dancing’ around a crab apple tree earlier this month. This one repeatedly settled to rest in a small sheltered spot to be warmed in the sunshine.

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.
