What butterfly is this?

'Butterfly on flower', 6 ins sq., wc on wc paper.

A painting taken fairly directly from a photo on wetcanvas.  It is for the butterfly project in the classical forum.

I don't know what this black and red stripey fellow is called.  Anyone got a clue?  I don't think its a European species, but you never know.

It was rather difficult to switch back to watercolours after painting in acrylics for so long.  I find watercolours rather difficult compared to acrylics or pastels, but since I love other people's watercolours, I keep trying them.

What is your favourite medium and why?

Very beautiful... have no idea what this butterfly is called! I prefer acrylics too.. Tracey Fletcher King has been doing a little water colour class...not sure if it's still on...but wow I noticed all the cool watercolours people are doing that take it!!
