|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Danaus chrysippus, also known as the plain tiger or African monarch, is a medium-sized, butterfly widespread in Asia and Africa. It belongs to the Danainae ("Milkweed butterflies") subfamily of the brush-footed butterfly family, Nymphalidae. Its coloration is mimicked by multiple species.|
The plain tiger can be considered the archetypical danaine of India. Accordingly, this species has been studied in greater detail than other members of its subfamily occurring in India.

Always a pleasure to view one of these colorful butterflies which somewhat resembles our Monarchs as well as the Queen from Central America. Lovely rich yet natural colors and wonderful detail of butterfly, fruit and tree. Exposure looks great and I like the framing you chose.
Congratulation for this outstanding capture. Very sharp image and with perfect focus as usual. I like the natural colors and the low POV in which you shoot this photo. The white spots on the wings are very well presented.....
Ciao Ram, great macro of fantastic butterfly, splendid light, fine details, excellent sharpness and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
