Herself nectaring, correction

Cut and paste did not work! [Dennis]

Here is Martin's report, verbatim:
"On Saturday 19th July, my wife saw what she thought to be a White Admiral on our garden Buddleia in Chinnor Oxon. I was away, so wasn't able to see it. However, on Sunday 20th, my wife called me when she was hanging out the washing and told me it was back. I raced home from Bernwood where I was looking for the Purple Emperor, to no avail, only to discover that the White Admiral was in fact a female Purple Emperor! It stayed a good 3 hours nectaring....see photo. How amazing is that!! What was it doing in my garden?"
