Double Drop

Today at Madgeland Wood (Southwater) I watched an Empress busy around the crown of a tall sallow near the Trout Lane assembly trees. She strayed too close, immediately catching the attention of the single male on station here. A classic avoidance tumble ('the Willmott drop') failed to shake Him off, so she rose again and repeated the process. This time it worked.
