Observation - IMAG1430. Description: I found this moth or butterfly last night at around 7.00pm. As you can see from the photo it had black and white upperwings and you can just about see the edges of its lower wings, which were red with black spots. Didn't get a great view of the underwings

I found this moth or butterfly last night at around 7.00pm. As you can see from the photo it had black and white upperwings and you can just about see the edges of its lower wings, which were red with black spots. Didn't get a great view of the underwings, but think they were quite a drab, nondescript brown (to blend with trees I guess). Looking at a very limited general wildlife id book, I would guess this is possibly a Garden Tiger Moth, but am really not sure.
