Danaus plexippus


In North America, millions of Monarchs migrate annually over a distance of 2000 miles ( 3200km ) between their breeding territories in Canada and their southern over-wintering grounds in Mexico. Tagging of individual butterflies has proven that they regularly cover distances of up to 1100 miles in just a few days.
