The Emperor's Purple Clothes

Purple Emperors are famed for their love of dog poo and rotten banana skins and there is plenty of both in Fermyn Woods near Oundle. However, we didn't see any Purple Emperors in Fermyn on Wednesday (20th) but a walk through to Lady's Wood was very productive with around 12 individuals coming to the woodland track (no dog poo or banana skin needed). Great animals- big and beautiful and incredible how they can look black/brown and white until the sun catches them just right (such in the last photo).
