When I spotted this, it had wings open. Only got a second or two glance before it closed wings. I thought it might have been Small Tortoiseshell or Red Admiral, but I haven't seen underwing patterns like this on them before. Wingspan when open, I would guess at about 40+mm. Pic taken from distance and didn't manage better shot when it flew. In heavily wooded area.
