The Viceroy

it's often mistaken for a Monarch Butterfly but the Viceroy has some slightly different characteristics that can help you identify it. The black line that runs across the wings is not found on the Monarch. Viceroys are typically smaller in size to Monarchs and they often exhibit a different flight pattern. Monarchs do more gliding while Viceroys flutter about more quickly.
