White Letter Hairstreak

First time I've seen this species at Sunnybank, Todmorden. There were 2 of them feeding on Veronicastrum for most of the day.

  White Letter Hairstreak

This moth was also feeding on the same plant; If anyone can supply a name?

Hi Philip, your moth is an Antler Moth.
Lovely photos of a scarce butterfly in our area!
