Ovenden Moor

After some searching late morning I managed to find just one of these resting on bilberry bushes in among the heather. We have managed to find this species here before when it's been warm, still and sunny . They are easily missed even then !
Green Hairstreak
 
There were also plenty of Common Heath's on some areas of the long heather, but trying to get even a half-decent photo was a struggle - they just take off as you creep just that bit closer !
