The Cardinal by Afinodora The Cardinal by Afinodora
Argynnis pandora, male.

Argynnis pandora, the cardinal, is a large species with a distinctive and dramatic underside forewing intense pink patch (water-melon red), similar to the silver-washed fritillaryA. paphia, which lacks the pink on the underside of this species and the grey-green of the upperside. It is common throughout southern Europe and is also found in northern Africa and western and central Asia. The wingspan is 64–80 mm. The butterfly flies from April to September (in Europe typically May to August) depending on the location. The larvae feed on Viola species. (Wikipedia, euroButterflies)
