Artist's Description

Danaus chrysippus, known as the Common African Monarch on the Cape Honeysuckle (Tecoma capensis) in our garden at Jansenville in the East Cape of South Africa.
’n Melkbosskoenlapper op die oranje Kaapse kanferfoelie in ons tuin op Jansenville in die Oos-Kaap van Suid-Afrika.

The Common African Monarch is a butterfly which is widespread in the world. The Monarch Butterfly is the most common species of the family Danaidae, the milkweed butterflies. The adult has wings of a striking reddish-brown, with black veins and black borders with two rows of white dots. The wingspread is 10 cm.
Hierdie skoenlapper of vlinder kom in oral in Suid-Afrika voor. In Gauteng is hulle die volopste.Die mannetjies het vier swart kolle op die agterste vlerk en die wyfies drie. Die oranjekleurige monarg (Danaus spp) bevat ’n sterk gifstof wat onmiddellike braking veroorsaak by voëls wat die insek eet. Die gif maak nie die voël dood nie, maar veroorsaak dat hy gou leer om die kleurpatroon te verbind met onsmaaklikheid. Smaaklike skoenlappers wat soos monarge lyk, word dus ook meestal met rus gelaat.
