This little guy, which seems to be a “Distelfalter” (Painted Lady or Vanessa cardui):

Appologies for the slight striped and grained piccie above, but this was taken through the window *and* a flynet and for that it is very well, I think.
When I got outside to repeat the piccie without obstacles between me and the butterfly, it had already fluttered on.
