Beautiful Hairstreak Ed but the plant is just a tad on the over exposed side.

Great shot Ed. I saw some of these in June on Bilberry plants in the Peak District but wasnt able to get a shot. I intend to go back next year and see if they are there. They are certainly both distinctive and beautiful.
