I just found out from an Englishman (who wants to eat my moth - LOL) because it looks like Battenburg Cake. HA! It is really beautiful!

I meant to put a note. This is the 3rd. I found this one after another one on the deck. It was much smaller and duller and difficult to photograph. I am so excited!
