Indian Fritillary (female)

Argynnis hyperbius


I saw this Fritillary flying along a path in a forested area behind my friends house in a Tokyo suburb, but I didn't have my camera with me. When I went back early the next day, it (or a similar female) was basking on leaves close to the path and 'allowed' me to take a couple of photos.


Seen in a park in a residential area of Chiba, Tokyo.
