Monarch butterflies are famous for their long-distance seasonal migration and spectacular winter gatherings in Mexico and California.

In late August, masses of monarch butterflies begin an epic migration stretching thousands of miles from the mountaintops of Central Mexico to areas across the United States and as far north as Canada, according to the New York State DEC.

The wings look like stained glass, with reddish-orange coloration and conspicuous black veins bordered in black and speckled with white dots. Males have thinner veins with a black dot on the inside of the hind wings; females have thicker veins and lack the dot.

Monarch butterflies are found in open meadows and fields that usually contain a variety of wildflowers including milkweed, coastal beaches with dunes, and man-made butterfly gardens.
