Green Hairstreak   Callophrys rubi

Callophrys rubi Callophrys rubi Pyrenees

I've only taken very poor photos of this butterfly in England which flits quickly form site to site but both in Spain and France they seemed to settle for a bit longer (about 20 seconds) so I got close enough to take a recognisable photo.
