Was this taken at butterfly farm, if not then it must be an escape as it is not a native UK species.

Thanks for your reply. It was taken in our garden feeding on verbena bonensaris . There is a "Butterfly world" within about 3-4 miles across the M4 :-)
From internet it looks like it is from N America - Zebra Heliconia... it says it's popular with Butterfly Farms as it is long-lived.
