This striking butterfly is a regular visitor here although we rarely see more than one or two each year. It is much more common in the Southern parts of it's range.
The major food sources for it's larvae are Toadflax and Plantain.
In size, it is somewhat smaller than a Monarch.
The "eyespots" are supposed to make it scary to predators but one can take that with a grain of salt.
