Great pictures of the monarch and viceroy BF!  It's amazing how well the viceroy mimics the monarch to fool it's enemies.

Such lovely shots and insects! I love it Laughing

Gerda, a short while ago there was an item on the news about Tienen being overwhelmed with fire bugs (vuurwantsen) and one of the local politicians talked all about it, but when this terrible bug was shown on tv, it turned out the be the larve of the asian ladybird and not the fire bug at all.

Some politicians will say anything just to get their faces on the tv.

Monarch Butterfly For Comparison

Viceroy

My first ever photos of a Viceroy. Look closely U can see differences. The Monarch is also much larger but being zoomed in thats hard to tell.

A Firey Skipper,also seen today. Apparently somewhat rare.
