This is a plain tiger - Danaus chrysippus sucking necter from a flower. Outside Asia it is also known as African Monarch.

Description
Wingspan 60-80 mm. The sexes are similar. The male can be identified by the scent patch on the second vein of the hind wing. On the upper side, it appears as a large black patch towards the center of the wing, and on the underside, as a white centered black patch.

There are three different forms of the Plain Tiger, of which the commonest is shown here. The other two forms are rare. Form dorippus lacks the white apical spots on the forewing. In form alcippoides, the upper side of the hind wing is suffused with a large white area.

Nice photo, but a shoehorn for the challenge. Still, nice DOF. I guess a butterfly is Healthy Food for a bird...

Not voting just commenting. If there's more to this than shoehorning a butterfly shot into the challenge, it's gone way over my head.

Hmm, I don't quite get how the title relates to the photo, but I don't count titles for much anyhow. Good, crisp butterfly shot.

Seems to me unless you eat nectar or butterflies this is a bit of a DNMC. Otherwise it is a great capture with some very beautiful colors!

A nice photo of a butterfly, but it doesn't meet the challenge in my opinion.

Beautiful picture of the butterfly but I don't really see how it fits...
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Hmmmm - shoe horning a butterfly shot into a healthy food challenge? Or is it that the butterfly is eating healthy? I'm going to go with the latter as your reasoning, as this is too nice an image to score low for not meeting a challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/30/2008 01:17:38 AM
I can't see the relevance. Yet it is a nice macro.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/30/2008 01:08:25 AM
it's a nice one! Composition and coors are good. But it dont#t fits the challenge: no healthy meal here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/30/2008 01:06:58 AM
