WHITE-LETTER HAIRSTREAK

Taken Bentley Wood, Hampshire, UK. These Hairstreaks are restricted to very local areas in South and Central England. Their numbers have declined significantly since the outbreak of Dutch Elm Disease in 1970's. They spend most of their time in the tops of Elm trees but will visit bramble to feed.
