Killing Time at Myrtle Beach

A week ago, I took my daughter up to Myrtle Beach to spend time with my parents.  Saturday morning when she got up, she wasn't interested in doing much, so we walked around to see what might be hanging around the house.  We found a Viceroy Butterfly, a paper wasp of some sort, and a Carolina Mantis.  The mantis was probably Julianna's favorite, followed by the Viceroy. Julianna told me all about Viceroys, Monarchs and Queens (well as much as you could expect from a 7-year old).  I was impressed with what her school is teaching her. She was not nearly as interested in the wasp as I was for some strange reason. By the way, if you're interested why this butterfly is a Viceroy and not a Monarch, look at the black line on the hind wings that crosses the veins.  Monarchs do not have this line, and that's the easiest way to tell them apart.
