The Green Longhorn (Adela reaumurella) are day-active lepidopterans from the moth family Adelidae, the fairy longhorn moths. The wingspan of the moth ranges from 14 to 18 millimeter.
The upper wings of both sexes are metallic green and the under wings are metallic bronze. The males have very long antennas that are white. They have rough black hair on their heads. The females have relatively short antennas with shorter and lighter hair on their heads.
The flight time ranges from April to June.

L'Adèle verdoyante, Adela reaumurella, est une espèce d'insectes de l'ordre des lépidoptères (papillons), famille des Adelidae.
Les ailes postérieures de ce petit papillon sont brun pourpré. Les antenne filiformes de la femelle sont bien plus courtes que celles du mâle.
D'avril à juin, on peut observer les mâles voler en grand nombre autour des arbres en plein soleil, les antennes en avant, se laissant choir puis remontant rapidement, en mouvements répétitifs.

Very good macro shot of the tiny moths. I have never seen any like that or maybe I have and have just mistaken them for some other insect.
