Bird and butterfly seen in Munich.... ID help needed please..

on hols and saw this bird,.. slightly smaller than a Tufty

and this flutter... about the size of a Peacock or Red Admiral... had a hint of purple on the wings near its body.  It wouldn't oblige by opening its wings any further.

Oh my goodness I wonder if you have seen a Purple Emperor!!! Definitely looks like one. Would be so envious if you had - spent hours on Sunday in search of one!!! TBH though I don''t know much about the species of butterfly seen in Germany so it could be something similar. Hope someone else with more knowledge can id it 100% for you.

Enjoy the rest of your holiday :)
