Dyseriocrania subpurpurella

I have seen very few micro-moths so far this year in my garden, but whilst out in the sunshine this afternoon I spotted a Dyseriocrania subpurpurella floating in the birdbath. I managed to retrieve it, and put it under my USB microscope while it was drying out. The picture below is not great, but it does show some of the bright purple scales dotted amongst the gold ones and the hairs above the head.
