Camera-Critters #77: Danaus

Common Tiger, Striped Tiger
Danaus genutia
黑脈樺斑蝶

Plain Tiger, African Monarch
Danaus chrysippus
樺斑蝶

This is our fourth posting of butterflies of "Flying Cow Ranch". These two very closely resemble the American Monarch Butterfly (Danaus plexippus). They are so colorful, not common and plain at all. Can you tell the difference between them? One has veins on the wings marked with broad black bands.
