Not Plain Tiger

I've been looking at the images of Danaus chrysippus but I don't see any with as much white on the wings as my spotting so would that still be the Plain Tiger? I know nothing about butterflies etc just love spotting : ) Perhaps you could enlighten me please

That is plain tiger falls on Danidae family. The many white spot on thorax region indicates, it falls on danidae family.
Thank You
