  1. Wow! Very nice! Is it a composition of the same butterfly hatching or several on a row? Posted 11 months ago
  2. It's so interesting to see the sequence like this!

    Can you please add the geotag?

''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 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.
