Viceroy butterfly sits in a mud puddle.
"Monarch imitator" I thought this butterfly was a monarch. When I returned home and found it on the internet I found out it was not a monarch but a viceroy butterfly! It resembles the monarch but you can identify it by the bar sitting on the back of it's wings. A monarch does not have the bar. Fooled me!
