Yesterday morning, happend to spot a gorgeous Monarch (?) butterfly fluttering through the yard, ran in and grabbed the camera. Luckily it landed just long enough for me to snap just one photo.
I wonder if it is the caterpillar we spotted a few weeks back?
Or is it even a Monarch, perhaps it’s a Viceroy?

The Viceroy and Monarch butterflies look exactly alike except that the Viceroy has a black stripe on its secondary wings.
Fromthese comparison photos, it really looks quite similar to a Monarch.Which do you think it is?
