I stumbled on this picture :)
This is not entirely natural rastsvetochka. She's very self-colored :)
These red spots - meconium , which highlights the butterfly after birth.An interesting quote:
"Upon emerging from the pupa, with wings still wet, young Belyanko pushed out of his bowel curious few drops of red liquid - meconium: the remains of an old meal of small caterpillars.Produced thousands of butterflies, this action gave rise to the popular belief of the "bloody rain" mysteriously watering spring orchards. "
Alain Eid & Michel Viard "Les Papillons du Monde" les editions Hatier, Paris 1996
Himself once came under a rain at the height of the flight of Aporia Crataegi. And there was a white windbreaker long time ..... then walked pockmarked :)
