I went out looking for this kind of butterfly at a place where I have heard they had been spotted. I found one. I thought I had this one before but it turned out to be one of those I had not seen before. So, now I have two of them in my photo collection.  :)
According to litterature this butterfly is toxic.

A very interesting video from youtube

I just made it in time - sorry for the late entry!
Love your white against brilliant red and grey - espeically the second one.
