Lesser Purple Emperor

June is an excellent time for butterflies in C & E Europe. I have just finished two tours, one in Croatia and one in Hungary, which focused on these popular insects. Here is a Lesser Purple Emperor, one of many we saw in the Bukk and Aggtelek Hills in NE Hungary recently. It was easy to photograph as it perched on someone's hat at eye level.
