    Jacki, this is an excellent depiction of a very common but very lovely butterfly! I just saw one about an hour ago as I was running on a trail along the river where the Minnesota River meets the mighty Mississippi. I actually had stopped to catch my breath so I got a really good look at it and I thought to myself “I bet Jacki needs to do a pick about this one, too. ” no kidding!! mental telepathy!

    Is this the butterfly that resembles a Monarch butterfly but tastes terrible to its predators, thus saving the Monarchs? I used to know this stuff! Glorious pick, m’dear.

    no, that’s the Viceroy butterfly. monarch mimic. Monarchs taste awful and the Viceroy is tasty but the birds think it tastes awful cuz it looks like a monarch.
