On me travels last week and I managed to bag the biggy down in Northamptonshire non other than the Emperor himself what an awesome butterfly...

Purple Emperor

The bugger just would not open its wings unfortunately but wow what a cracker anyway.
Just down the way another hard too see job was performing to the gathered throng of butterfly enthusiasts. I've never seen so many cameras before it was like a Canon convention in Japan.

Naff shot of a White-letter Hairstreak one of which was most probably on the local patch t'other day along with a Purple this space as they say.

Competition time...what's this?
