Swamp Tiger (Danaus affinis)
Sorry to disappoint you but this is not a real tiger. It was just a 'common' butterfly but it is reportedly a mangrove specialist. Saw this swamp thing at a mangrove area at Kuala Selangor, Peninsular Malaysia recently.
Looks quite menacing from the front.

Saw at least 5 of them and they can be quite quarrelsome among themselves.
