The famous monarch butterfly is known throughout the world, because of its amazing migration habits.    But did you know ... it is involved in a complex mimic ring too?  Many tropical butterflies and some moths, often quite unrelated, mimic the orange and black warning colors and pattern of the monarch butterfly.  The monarch is highly distasteful to birds, and the tasty and edible copycat species gain protection being mimics and actually fool their enemies.
