After a message from The Leicester Llama last week informing me of good numbers of Green Hairstreaks at Charnwood Lodge, I headed out with Leigh this morning to try some photographs.
As usual the Hairstreaks are particularly skittish especially if another insect enters their territory when they give chase. We finally managed to get a few to settle and I managed to find an almost tame one.
Green was also an album by R.E.M. and featured the brilliant Stand.
