Where is the monarch? - part two


My daughter caught a viceroy in our yard- and she gave it to me -you can see the actual butterfly on the right. I was so very pleased that I sketched it. I believe we saw a viceroy out our screened door the day that I wrote about in my first post. Year's ago I did a weaving of a monarch as a commission for a private client. I only had pictures to look at and since than I have always had a secret longing to see a live one. The viceroy which is called a monarch mimic and which I have never seen before either did not live at our island home on the west coast. I am so thankful for this east coast blessing.
