Purple Hairstreak on Oak leaf. They feed of the honeydew that the Aphids leave behind.
How beautiful!! I've never seen one with it's wings open! (I've only ever seen pictures of them with their wings closed!)

Lovely shot, Julian, you've captured the colours perfectly.
Lovely to see one with it's wings open.
Thanks folks and I'm glad it is interesting. They come down low in the Oaks, on particularly hot days when you can see the wings. Males and females are quite different.
Very nice macro Julian! Love the colours.
Cracking shot Julian
Never managed to nail one yet, but that is probably my fault, for not being at the right place at the right time
Apparently there is a colony at Wicksteed park, only 15 minutes walk from home, but never been to investigate
Great capture well presented.
A top shot Julian, this is a species i've never seen before
