Monarch is rested on a small wicker ball.
The most widely recognized butterfly in all of America was raised in our green house. Once he perished we naturally preserved his beauty forever. With its distinct orange, black, and white wings the male monarchs are much brighter than the female monarchs. While still beautiful, this coloring actually sends a warning to predators that the monarch is foul tasting and poisonous. One of the most notable characteristics about the monarch is the astonishing 3000 mile journey some will make in the fall. The western North American population of monarchs; west of the Rocky Mountains most often migrate to sites in California but have been found in overwintering Mexico sites.
Origin: Found throughout the United States, as well as Mexico and Canada,
