A mating pair of Viceroy butterflies perching on a willow tree, one of the host plants for Viceroy caterpillars. Viceroy butterflies look similar to Monarch butterflies (Danaus plexippus). "It can be distinguished from the Monarch by its smaller size and the post-median black line that runs across the veins on the hindwing." Source Credit: Wikipedia.
