Being an avid reader of The Purple Empire blog page i wonder if you could help me please. Until today i was an Iris virgin, having only ever seen his majesty in books. Thankfully at Bentley Wood this morning that all changed as i was treated to photographing both a pristine and a worn male on the floor feasting on dog droppings.
The pristine male i saw had been disturbed from a log but returned moments later to the same spot, and as it was about to land it was fluttering it wings furiously making quite a pronounced sound to the three of us watching it. So my question to you is is this sound normal behavior ? or is there a reason you can think of that could explain this please ?
Any response would be gratefully appreciated.
