[This is not, as many might think, a Monarch Butterfly. It is a Viceroy Butterfly, resting at the base of an Oak Tree along some moss.  Unlike Monarchs, Viceroy Butterflies do not migrate south for the winter.  Viceroy Butterflies overwinter as caterpillars, resting inside rolled leaves.  Once the weather gets a bit colder, this Viceroy will likely perish; but its caterpillar offspring will survive the winter to emerge as new, splendid butterflies.]
