The king! The emperor!

Purple Emperors seen at Oversley Wood today. Female in fast flight at eye level – quite a sight – followed by two or three males flitting high up in the pines. A great big tick now goes on my butterfly list!

One enterprising person had left some sardine as a lure and another person had earlier managed to attract a male down to some fish paste. Dog poo also works well!
