6:th of August
An August highlight on the butterfly scene is of course the late flying Hairstreaks. I set off for just a short bicycle-excursion to see some of them and manage pretty well. At least 7 Purple hairstreaks flit around an oak tree, but mainly up in the canopy, so I have to collect one with my net and get a jar-picture in order to get any picture documentation at all.
At least 7 individuals were seen together.
