Jersey Tiger Moth

I have been keeping an eye on the Buddlia bush in the garden, on the lookout for any different butterflies that I could photograph and I spotted this little beauty. I took a few photos and tried to identify the species. Well, it took a bit of research but I finally found out that it's called the 'Jersey Tiger Moth'. Apparently quite rare in England, but not in ....ahem, Jersey, or hereabouts apparently.

Quite a striking fellow I think. I have also seen about, and I later identified it as, the Hummingbird Moth. I haven't been able to get any photos of this one yet, but I shall be on the lookout.
