Just been reading up again on these Ade, plus they seem to be found in the canopies of trees. They are very rare in the U.K. So you have done amazingly well to capture these

Fine image of a scarce butterfly, Ade. I like your lead image the best, and the hairstreak seems to be pointing up to that bud with its antennaeSmile.
