I don't really know the buterfly maybe you could help?
It looks like a moth but it's black and yellow and lives on the meadows.

Thanks to Dmitry (Osmeterium) who is always ready to help,
this little guy is identified as an owlet moth.
As far as I have managed to see there are all kinds of shapes and colours. some fly only by night,and use mimic very well,some feed on fruit or plants...
if you'd like to see some visit www.bugguide.net
