[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Danaus chrysippus, known as the “plain tiger” or the “African monarch”, is widespread in Asia and Africa. Like other Danainae subfamily members it feeds on the genus Asclepias, (“milkweed”), making it unpalatable to most predators.

These specimens were captured feeding on the last flowers of the season of Urginea (Drimia) maritima, the Sea Squill.

Hello Ishi,
Nice to once again see some of your beautiful work. Both original and WS photos are of top quality and your subject, (the Plain Tiger) is always an eye catcher. Wonderful rich colors and just the right amount of exposure.
