Looks like a Packard hood ornament.

All of your pictures of the butterflys have great detail to them.

Here's one for you and Kim: The Viceroy butterfly mimics the Monarch in colors and markings and it is difficult to tell them apart.

What is the one tell-tale marking that distinguishes the Viceroy from the Monarch?
Well if Kim won't answer I will.
A viceroy has a black line on its wing a monarch doesn't.

Where do viceroy butterflies spend the winter?

Gianni said...

Rolled up in a leaf of their host plant. Viceroys do not migrate.

And, very good with your answer, the black line.

These are unlike any butterflies I've ever seen. Where are the pins sticking thru their bodies?
