Not entirely sure if this is a butterfly or a day flying moth. Body length approximately 2.5 cm mostly brown insect, with distinctive white flashes on the underside of the wings, and yellow/brown markings on the upper/open face of the wings. Seems to rest with wings partly open, hence my confusion about butterfly or moth


Perennial flower border and rose beds in large urban garden. Photographed resting on a day lily, but often seen on roses and many other flowers
