I haven't had one yet. Steve Blacksmith September 20, 2013 at 6:29 pm - Reply I had the good luck to photo a Purple Hairstreak Butterfly (Quercusia quercus) near Scar Wood. The first I've ever got close to. It was a flight-worn female, but still very lively – 14th Sept.I posted the pics over on the Calderdale Moths blog.
