Photographer's comment: It is known that Apaturinae are used to feed on carrion and mud, and after rain - on the fireplaces - with great pleasure. But such a picture impressed the Moscow guest in the Far Fast forest very much) Apatura schrenckii landed for a long time at the remains of one of the most dangerous inhabitants of the taiga - Ussuri copperhead snake from the family of rattlesnakes, who was crushed by the car wheels (. Frequentative clicking of the shutter did not scare it, Apatura schrenckii was very fond of "delicacy"
