Monarch butterflies represent one of the most remarkable migrations of any insect species. Their travel spans 3 countries, Mexico, U.S. and Canada. These outstanding survivors consume leaves from milkweek plants as caterpillars thereby thriving on what is toxic vegetation for most other animals. They dazzle us with their beauty and the incredible achievement of their journey.
