Green beauty

Some species rarely stand still. This makes it extremely difficult to catch their beauty with the camera, or even with the eye. Hairstreaks are such species. In case of the Green Hairstreak (Callophrys rubi) most people probably don’t realize when a butterfly is flying by. They’re simply too quick and too small. It’s difficult to get a decent shot of the species. They also rapidly loose the colors and shimmer on their fragile wings.

After raising a Green Hairstreak from egg to adult, I finally got a moment to make some photos of a specimen that was resting. Here’s a glimpse of green beauty.
