viceroy DSC 7717 edited

A viceroy butterfly (Limenitis archippus). It looks very similar to the better-known Monarch butterfly, both advertising to predators that they taste bad. Viceroys are smaller than Monarchs with a strong black line through the hind wings, and, unlike Monarchs, they do not migrate.

I've never eaten a viceroy or a monarch, so I don't know how they taste. You caught a very nice pose of this viceroy.

Hi Ronald, Good point! I haven't eaten a butterfly either, although I did once have a deep-fried silkworm (once was enough).
