This beautiful red/white/black moth was found by the side of a busy main road, possibly it had been struck by a vehicle. I had previously seen 3 or 4 of what I believe to be the same fluttering over vegetation beside a stream,fluttering too fast to examine and not settling

Many thanks - the scarlet

Many thanks - the scarlet tiger is not shown in the book I have, but wing pattern in my photo looks more like scarlet tiger photos in other observations than garden tiger
