Hello John,
What a beautiful specimen with rich vivid colors. The purple Emperor is certainly a gorgeous butterfly as is evident by your well taken photo. Appears that this particular butterfly has a preferred liking for dung instead of the usual flowers. I love the iridescent purplish blue sheen on it's wings.

Ciao John, great macro of fantastic butterfly, wonderful colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, have a good Sunday, ciao Silvio
