Longhorn moths dancing over oak on moorland

 

Seen dancing around and above the upper leaves of a young oak. Wooded part of Blacka Moor in the Peak District..

I think it's Green Longhorn Adela reaumurella, but I haven't confirmed it yet.

Other insects seen whilst walking across Blacka Moor included a moth and a green tiger beetle.

The open moor is dominated by heather and bilberry, with cowberry in flower frequent.
