Butterfly eluded my camera but was flying over shrubby vegetation alongside woodland edge.

Top of wings main/background colour black, with bright scarlet/red strips on both hind and fore wings, and white blotches near tip of fore wings. Larger than most butterflies (in this country!) - eg bigger than a Peacock. Strong flight.
