Green, Purple and Gold.

Yet another cold day so a short trip out in the morning just hoping to see something of interest. In a brief sunny spell I saw a few more Pyrausta ostrinalis micro moths showing their lovely purple and gold colours. One was also roosting on a small plant giving an opportunity to photograph one off the ground.

In the afternoon I visited a local site for Green-winged Orchids. I wasn't too sure if they would be fully out and as it happened there were only 2 out with a few others a little further away from being fully in flower. It didn't look as though the numbers were going to be as high as some years and the plants were very small here.
Both plants were different shades of Purple.
