Framed Monarch Butterfly (Danaus plexippus) male & female

The monarch butterfly is a milkweed butterfly in the family Nymphalidae.

It is one of the best-known species of butterfly in the world.

In Canada, it ranges from Alberta to Newfoundland, with extensive breeding in southern Ontario and southern Quebec. There is also a small population of Monarchs in southern British Columbia.

As a caterpillar, the Monarch is distinctively white, yellow, and black-banded. It transforms into a large, showy butterfly with orange and black wings, bordered with white spots. The larvae and caterpillar feed solely on the milkweed plant, which is the only plant on which Monarchs successfully lay their eggs.

Unlike most butterflies, the Monarch migrates. Each fall, Monarch butterflies from Canada travel approximately 4,000 kilometers to Mexico.

The Monarch population in southern British Columbia migrates to coastal California.
