Hunting green at Steyning

I need Green Hairstreak photos so I tried Steyning Rifle Range today. There was plenty of life around but the butterfly remained elusive until lunchtime. I was halfway through my sandwiches when a Greenie landed in front of me. I grabbed the camera and set off in pursuit but lost it.

There were plenty of insects and flowers to keep the lens working.
