This is a fairly large butterfly, it's wingspan was just over 4 inches. It was mostly a light yellow color, but it did have many dark black markings along the edges of it's wings, as well as the distinctive stripes.
Found fluttering around the edge of mixed woodland near a garden.
Unlike most butterflies, this one did not mind my presence, it was a slow flyer and it did not quickly escape when i tried to get close to it.
