Hairstreak Day

By casson  
I went with a few friends to Oxfordshire looking for Black Hairstreak butterflies, they are difficult to see as they fly around the tops of Blackthorn. In between the rain showers we saw around 20 and managed a couple of shots.Thanks for looking.

Apologies to Bert C,Stevebidmead,Rodmac and mutznutz original was dark, so I have replaced it.

Nice detail in the butterfly - looks good on the leaf.
I think a little crop on the LH side would be a good option.

A beautiful little butterfly, which you've caught well.
