Monarch Butterfly


This is one of my most beautiful friends, and I have to say it's a real relief to write about after studying the Army Ants! Monarchs are amazing creatures and as you probably already know, they are migratory! (In other words, they spend their summers in one place and their winters in another.) The Monarch spends its winters as far south as the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico. (I've been telling my parents that that was a pretty good idea and that we should try it, but they haven't gone for it yet.) And they spend their summers in the United States - some almost all the way to Canada! For many, that's a trek of around 2500 miles! To tell you the truth, I get scared for them and I can't quite understand how they do it.


It's Your Turn!

Okay, now a question for you: Is the Monarch in the picture below a male or a female? Go to Bug Me and send me an email telling me what you think and why. If you're right, I'll post your name on my site complete with your answer!


Look Forward to Hearing from YOU Soon!
