Monarch butterflies are some of the most recognizable and beautiful butterflies in North America. Unfortunately, most of us have to wait for their migration in late summer/autumn to see them at all!  The eastern population migrates southward from the US & Canada to Mexico, while the western population usually migrates to sites in California.

If you want to experience the beauty of a monarch year-round, this one is willing to stick around. It”ll keep warm on your desk, flapping contentedly in the sun.
