Photographer's Note

Butterfly Park at Bannerghatta houses 42 rare varieties of butterflies and 100 species of the beautiful insects that will serve as a hub for research, education and conservation. The Butterfly Park is located near the Bannerghatta National Park on the outskirts of Bangalore. It is spread over an area of 7.5 acres and includes a 'butterfly trail' in a five acre garden and a three-domed structure covering 10,490 sq ft.

The Common or Striped Tiger (Danaus genutia) is a butterfly found in India that belongs to the Crows and Tigers, that is, the Danaid group of the Brush-footed butterflies family.

It resembles the Monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus) of the Americas. The caterpillar of the Common Tiger Butterfly obtains a supply of poison by eating milkweed vines, which makes the caterpillar and butterfly a distasteful morsel for predators.

You can see another shot of Stripped Tiger at Treknature.
