Monarch Butterflies:  (Danaus Plexippus) They migrate up to 2,500 miles, but only the fourth generation will migrate as the first three generations die after about six weeks after leaving their cocoons.  Females lay several hundred eggs.  The butterfly larvae eat milkweed.  The males have a black spot on each of the hind wings.  Photos with Canon Macro 100mm 1:2.8 IS USM L series lens.
