GREEN HAIRSTREAKS

In May, a gauge of my alert­ness on wildlife walks is how many Green Hairstreaks I spot. You might think that such a vivid green but­ter­fly would be easy to spot. But this spring in­sect blends in mar­vel­lously with the scrubby fo­liage it fre­quents. Look for it – care­fully! – on chalk down­lands, wood­land clear­ings and sandy grass­lands na­tion­wide.
