And this is a garden tiger (arctia caja).
It was sitting in the grass and I almost treaded on it.
First I thought it was dead. But when I carefully put my finger underneath it was hanging onto it.
When I tried to put it on a leaf it flew away and I was happy.

This poor Red Admiral looks like he was on the wrong of the Battle of Trafalgar with its wings shot to pieces (photoed in Norfolk, Nelson's County).

It looks to me it could be a Cryptic Wood White and it has some similarity to a Green Veined.
You are right. A friend of mine and I checked it and it is indeed a green-veined white (pieris napi).
Thank you very much for helping me.
