Viceroy

Limenitis archippus

Description:

Looks like a Monarch Butterfly but I believe this is the look-a-like Viceroy or Limenitis archippus, if I'm not mistaken

Habitat:

Near woods growing along a mowed path next to a fresh water lake (Lake Emma)

Notes:

Looking for confirmation as I believe the only way to tell them apart is a line or extra line located on their wings...
