  1. Wow! Very nice! Is it a composition of the same butterfly hatching or several on a row? Posted 9 months ago
  2. It's so interesting to see the sequence like this!

''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.
