Common Tiger
Danaus genutia genutia

The Common Tiger has the same colouration as the Plain Tiger and indeed, the white and orange forms also occur as in the Plain Tiger. The veins of this species are strongly marked with black and in the field, the Common Tiger may occasionally be mistaken for the Black Veined Tiger. The white form, form-intermedius, has white hindwings with the border tinged with orange.

The form-genutia has the hindwings coloured as in the forewings. The butterfly is not commonly encountered in Singapore, but is often seen in the urban and sub-urban areas where it may find its host plant, the creeper-weed Raphistemma pulchellum, growing in a patch of undeveloped land. The Common Tiger is attracted to the dried plants of Heliotropium indicum.

Here it is prefered some more contrast as the tiger looks faded, please correct me the viewers and rest is 10/ 10..

Hi Meerkat.
This is a beautiful and elegant capture, I like very much everything on it. Congratulations.
I also like this faded atmosphere, but I could not avoid making a fast WS, hope you dont mind.
Best regards, Felipe.
