Green Hairstreak Butterfly; Hide and Seek

Hard to find if you don't see them move. Can you find it? ;)


I spotted a butterfly fluttering over this hawthorn bush halfway up a steep south west facing bank.I climbed a little way up and my balance was challenged. This was the first Green Hairstreak I had ever seen so I was going to take a picture whatever happened. Fortunately I didn't fall and the results, although not perfect were satisfying.This is the third year I had looked for them and to find even one was a big bonus.
