This butterfly came out of nowhere while me & my family were having breakfast on veranda of our house.It flew above us and then went directly inside. After a little examination, she landed on the fly swatter near the doorside. That's the time I took the shot and she flew away.

The photo is the best I could get with a 18-55 mm lens since I don't have a macro lens yet. I don't know much about butterflies. I hope someone helps me with the ID of this beautiful butterfly.Thank you for your comments.

Nice! It is a Jersey Tiger, Euplagia quadripunctaria

Hello Can and welcome to TN.
Nice shot, I like how the moths wings are back lit, and the red color. Light fill flash would make it better IMO. You could always try an extension ring on your 18-55mm for macro. Single rings are relatively inexpensive..
Well done and TFS!

Hope you did not swat this beauty later, Can!
Welcome to the TN.
Howard is our Guru figure on this site, so paying attention to his suggestions always works out well.
Thanks for sharing the image.

Hi Can,
Nice color here.
