Green Hairstreaks and Duke of Burgundies

Green Hairstreak, Callophrys rubi
This morning I spent an enjoyable few hours with Mark Colvin and Neil Hulme at Heyshott escarpment. I was pleased to see Orange-tips, Brimstones, several Whites, Speckled Woods, Red Admiral, a Grizzled Skipper, several Green Hairstreaks, including a stunningly marked specimen, and a male and female Duke of Burgundy.
 I then visited Rewell Wood and saw many Green Tiger Beetles.
