Butterflies are almost defenseless. They use camouflage to hide from predators and some species are poisonous to predators. Poisonous butterflies include the Monarch and the small postman.

The Viceroy's colors mimic those of the Monarch butterfly. They do this to protect themselves against predators. Predators know that Monarch butterflies do not taste good, so they avoid them, and therefore will also avoid the Viceroy.

No, but they are hosts to certain protozoans, such as Ophryocystis elektroscirrha , which affects only butterflies. The monarch has a species defense against predators, which are toxic glycosides found in some parts of its body -- these are unpalatable to predators.

I know a bird does not eat monarch butterflies because the monarchs have a taste that birds don't like. That's one way they prevent predators.
