VICEROY VS. MONARCH These two are most often confused with each other because of their similar patterns. The viceroy mimics the monarch, in hopes of warding off potential predators. They are actually both poisonous upon consumption, making the predator violently ill. As you can see, this viceroy was actually sampled by something but left alone after what appears to be the first bite! 🤔 How to tell the difference? Viceroy have “rakes” in the bottom wings reminding me of scarecrows! Viceroy have more colors used on the underside as well. They have a different color orange for the top wings and the bottom. Monarchs have “oval” shapes to the patterns on their wings, while viceroy markings come to straight points. They are both beautiful and are wonderful pollinators to our community!! *Photographs 1 & 2 are Viceroy, 3 & 4 are monarchs! #monarch#viceroy#butterfly#pollinators#naturephotography#naturelovers#nature#entomology#itsabugslife#educate#bethechange#lovethyearth#mothernature#plantnursery
