From last summer: a small grey-brown moth with a metallic sheen, probably  a Coleophorid moth (Lepidoptera: Coleophoridae). 

Initially had this down as a possible Glyphipterix fuscoviridella but the forked wings are not right for Glyphipterix sp.  Then I thought it might be Metriotes lutarea but that flies in May and the above moth was seen in July.
