More about Monarchs:
Recognizable by its distinct orange, black, and white wings, the monarch butterfly is found throughout the United States, Mexico, and Canada. In the fall, monarchs make an astonishing 3000 mile journey to their wintering grounds Mexico and California where they cluster together in great numbers in the trees, a sight that can never be forgotten.
Because of their distinctive “stained glass” patterned wings, birds which like to snack on butterflies, know to leave them alone. Their appearance signals to the birds that their bodies are filled with toxins from the milkweed plants they love to eat.
