[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Danaus chrysippus, known as the Plain Tiger or African Monarch, is a common butterfly which is widespread in Asia and Africa. It belongs to the Danainae ("Milkweed butterflies") subfamily of the brush-footed butterfly family, Nymphalidae. It is a medium-sized, non-edible butterfly, which is mimicked by multiple species.
The Plain Tiger is believed to be one of the first butterflies to be used in art. A 3500 year old Egyptian fresco in Luxor features the oldest illustration of this species. Source and more: Wikipedia

Hello Soumen,
Although it's a bit dark photo, this is nice in exceptable sharpness, natural colours and taken from an excellent POV in a fine composition.

Hello Soumen

Nice photo of this butterfly in a back-light light,
with a fine lateral POV to show of its patterns, TFS


Hello Soumen,
Yes,the PoV and the composition is excellent,very nice BG too.
Thanks and best regards,

Hello Soumen,
Remarkable photo and comments. This interesting species of butterfly has wonderful colors. The contrast against the background is superb. Very nice composition taken from a excellent low POV with lovely light and best clarity.
Thanks for sharing!

Hi Souman,

A beautiful photo of this Monarch, one of my favorite butterflies. Beautiful and rich colors, good light and good composition.


Hi Soumen,

You're capturing well this butterfly by a good composition, good focus and excellent tone, so it&s interesting and impressive to see Danaus chrysippus with the head of a monochrome spotty pattern and which has a monochrome spotty pattern in the feather which made brown the keynote. And, you catch well it by the angle which has stopped at the posture level to a sprig.

Kind regards,

Hallo Souman
very nice composition with good details and lovely colours
thanks greeting lou
