Monarch Butterfly – wingspan 3.5″ Migratory between Canada & Mexico (some even to Hawaii & Australia) traveling north in Spring & Summer. Egg to caterpillar to butterfly takes 4 week. Several generations live out in 1 calendar year.

Its population has been steadily decreasing as mentioned in This Article in the NY Times, it’s so sad.
