Gliding Emperor

By lawbert
Many Thanks for the Comments and Votes on my previous upload which I foolishly classed as a Migrant Hawker but many Thanks to ZygoBlue for his correct identification as it being an Emperor.

Heres the Emperor again on the glide this time.

Voters: BIGRY1, SUE118, Les_Cornwell and 16 more
