***The common Tiger Butterfly (Danaus Genutia) This was taken during my family trip at the butterfly garden in Puerto Princesa Palawan.

Editing done:
Midtone adjustment.
due to compression i have to sharpen the image to bring back the lost details.

***I have made a mistake of naming this specie. I'd like to correct what's written above.

The real name of this beauty was "Orange Lacewing" (Cethosia Penthesilea).

The Orange Lacewing is orange above with broad black patch on forewing tip containing a white patch. The upper surface of the hindwings are orange bordered with black. The underside of the wings has a intricate pattern of white bars, edged with black lines and dots, on an orange background. There is also a large white patch on the underside of each forewing

wingspan 65mm

monsoon rainforest

larvae feed on Adenia heterophylla

Souteast Asia and top end northern territory of Australia.

" common tiger" is his name then ! .. thanks for the info and for this superb capture Arman, .. unfortunately no chance to get this in the forest or country in Europe, fellow, .., we need to get to bf parks to contemplate them, .. TFS

best regards

Most impressive and i believe my favorite today already! LOVE the background your low f stop proved an excellent choice and even with the compression fracture you still managed a breathtaking shot. A bit of high contrast noted but what better way to bring out the vibrancy of this amazing species!


Colorful image and has the characteristics of being delicate in addition to colorful. Jumping an F stop or two might have increased your DOF enough to capture the entire butterfly in focus. Anyhow well done.
