This sequence of Purple Hairstreak at Chicksands Wood, 3/8/07, are all more or less blurred but possibly interesting as they unusually show the purple upperside and also interesting behaviour in frames 3-6 where the insect is fanning its wings extremely quickly - too quick to freeze. In the last image it has just started flying off, but it makes quite a nice abstract.

Brimstone, Chicksands Wood 3/8/07
Chicksands Wood 3/8/07 Martin Palmer ID'ed this as an Essex Skipper, and I'm inclined to agree, as the undersides of the antennae are mostly blackish, though with a little orange at the tips, which I always find confusing.
