The Danaus Plexippus Linnaeus, or Monarch Butterfly, is one of the most well-known butterflies on earth. This is due to their remarkable ability to migrate, wide distribution, and charismatic appearance. One population migrates as far north as the Great Lakes region of the United States during spring and summer months and then returns to the mountains of Central Mexico for the winter months. They give a whole new meaning to the term “snowbirds”. With such a huge range, it’s no wonder these have become one of the most popular butterflies on earth. It’s also the perfect specimen for your collection to usher in the warmer months. Think of it as a good omen of an early spring.
