In the UK these beautiful butterflies are only found at a few sites around the Norfolk Broads area. I'd wanted to see one for many years, and eventually in June 2016 I made a day-trip from my home in the south of Bedfordshire to Norfolk, specifically to look for them at the RSPB reserve at Strumpshaw Fen. It was well worth the 5-6 hours driving!
