viceroy, monarch and queen butterflies
The viceroy butterfly is another example of camouflage at work, it will mimic either the monarch or the queen butterfly when in those areas. the monarch and the queen are related, but the queen does not migrate and the monarch does (a migration route requiring alternate generations to complete).
