viceroy butterfly (Limenitis archippus)

The Viceroy is a Monarch look alike that uses the monarch colors to give it a survival edge. Predators avoid Monarchs because they contain toxins that the Viceroy does not contain. But since they resemble each other so much, predators that avoid Monarchs avoid Viceroys also. It is hard to tell the difference but the Viceroy has an extra black line that runs across the top of the hind wing.
