Danaus plexippus

The Monarch butterfly possesses a unique ability to endure long-distance migrations from Mexico to Canada.  Monarchs advertise their poisonous nature with their bright colors and sequester a toxic defense from milkweed their larva (caterpillars) consumes.

The rich colors of the wings will make a seductive accent to your existing home decor. The frame also includes a description of the Monarch’s natural history, making it a great conversation starter.

Also available displaying a male and female and as jewelry
