🌿🦋💛🌟☀️🌹🙌🏼 #LOve #GorgeouS #SunLight #GodLove #heartLightS #peacefulwarriors @extraordinary_youniverse_ location: Mexico ・・・ Every year millions of monarch butterflies undertake a great journey of up to 3000 miles in their annual migration from Canada and the United States to their wintering grounds in Mexico. Once in Mexico, the monarchs congregate in the oyamel fir trees of Michoacan and Mexico states. Monarch butterflies spend the summer months in the United States and Canada. As the weather turns colder they head south. The reason for their migration is two-fold. First of all, they can not survive the cold - temperatures below 55°F make it impossible for them to fly and when the mercury dips below 40°F they become paralyzed. Also, adult monarchs consume nectar from flowers so they need to go where they will find food. Traveling at an average speed of 12 mph (but sometimes going up to 30 mph), the monarchs cover about 80 miles a day. They can fly at heights of up to 2 miles. They travel an average of 1800 miles from the United States and Canada to the oyamel forests in Michoacan where they spend the winter before embarking on their return journey. How the monarch butterflies are able to find their way to the same wintering grounds every year remains a great mystery. One hypothesis holds that a small quantity of magnetite in the butterflies' bodies acts as a sort of compass leading them to the magnetic iron which is found in the area of Michoacan where they spend their winters. _________________________________________________ #monarchbutterfly #butterfly #naturelovers #nature #insects #entomology #bugs #nature_good #naturephotography #mexico #beutiful #extraordinary #earth_pix #mothernature #wow #amazing #meditate #spiritual #earth_shots #outdoors #knowledge #educate #read #goodread

El domingo pasado encontré a esa hermosa mariposa monarca en mi patio, ¿saben por qué es tan especial? por empezó a llover y siguió volando y saben que los insectos voladores desde que sus alas tocan el agua quedan atrapados y hasta ahí llegan. #Justkeepflying 🌬🌻🍃 #Motivational #Monarchbutterfly #piano #lanadelrey #vintage #blacandwhite

As the monarch butterflies around here are starting their migration down to Mexico it's time for a yard tour again. Over the summer I have had a butterfly nursery on my kitchen table to raise and release and photograph them. Along the back of my yard I have a milkweed patch to give the colourful insects a place to lay their eggs. I managed to capture this one as it was attaching one of its eggs to the underside of a leaf.

Not only does the Monarch migration only occur once a year, but I'm lucky to live close to one of the very few locations where they naturally roost! Because of this, since the timing aligned, there is a small chance that the number photos that I took was somewhere in between 0 and 1000. (You can guess which number it's closest to) . . . #monarchbutterfly #butterfly #migration #thisiscle #Cleveland #clevemetroparks #nature #nature_lovers #bokehlicious #bokehphotography #bokeh_bliss #hikingadventures #explore #outdoors #Ohio #wendypark #butterflyworld #butterflyart #shotoftheday #macrophotography #ig_macro #ig_naturelovers #sonyalpha #sonaya7iii #canon100mm

Nice to know my home is a home for monarchs too. 😁 🐛 ' Chrysalis (latin) comes from Ancient Greek χρυσαλλίς (khrusallís), from χρυσός (khrusós, “gold”), because of the color of some of them.

Monarch butterflies are very attracted to the rich nectar of "Hydrangea paniculate" plant. They stop by my garden every year to feast on the rich nectar of the beautiful hydrangea before their long fall migration journey back to Mexico. #monarchbutterfly #monarch #myphoto #mygarden #nature #hydrangea #flowers🌸

Tonight I used my last Monarch Watch tag for the season. Tag AAXZ074 is now placed on Mr. Echinacea, so named because I rescued him from under a leaf of the echinacea plant. He was hanging in J and just starting to pupate into chrysalis. I noticed a chalcid wasp on the same leaf, waiting for the caterpillar to finish pupating so it could lay its eggs into the soft chrysalis. I couldn’t let that happen. Have you ever rescued any chrysalises from parasites or predators? Which ones? #monarchbutterfly #monarchbutterflies #metamorphosis #monarchmigration #raisingmonarchs #entomology #Lepidoptera #monarchcaterpillars #gardens #monarchwatch #savethemonarch #caterpillar #monarchtagging #chrysalis #mariposamonarca #mothernaturesbeauty #butterflygarden #citizenscientist #eclosion #xercessociety #monarchjointventure #monarchwaystation #echinacea

@animalian.world

Today’s animal (yes, insects are animals!) is the monarch butterfly! Monarchs are among the most iconic butterflies out there, and elk known for their distinctive color patterns. These colors are meant to earn predators that they are poisonous! Every year, they travel north in the spring, to return south in the fall, a round trip which can reach 6,000 miles! Fun fact: monarchs smell with their antennae, and taste water and nectar using the hairs on their legs. . . . #monarch #monarchbutterfly #butterfly #caterpillar #cocoon #butterfree #kakuna #caterpie #insect #bug #animal #nature #conservation #amazinganimals #ecology #migration #colorful #nectar

And one last one from today. 🦋 A beautiful monarch butterfly on its way to Mexico for the winter!!! Crazy to think these monarchs will survive winter and start the process back up north in the spring. I read it takes 4-5 generations of monarchs to make it back up to Canada, but these ones will live close to 8 months. One of earths many wonders 😍 #monarch #monarchmigration #pitspot #clevelandohio #headedtomexico #monarchbutterfly #migration #cleveland #clegram #metroparks #hiking #hikingadventures #roamtheplanet #getoutside #outsideisfree #beautifulbutterfly #ohioexplored #bedfordreservation

#Nakomis Alvarado your #monarchbutterfly is pictured on a chunk of #hematite , exemplifying your grounding soul. Low key, you seemed unaffected; unamused, and distant. And Yet, there was a gentleman’s demeanor, and a leader awaiting his calling. Don’t hold back; drive towards your destiny. #monarchbutterfly #iteachthecrazyeights

@nicholmyrna

About a year ago I posted a picture that I had taken two years prior of what I thought was a monarch butterfly, only to learn that it was a viceroy, not a monarch. So now we are in year 2019 and I am thrilled to say that I finally got a picture of a monarch!!! The picture doesn't do it justice, it is so much bigger than all of the other butterflies, a beauty to behold❤ #monarchbutterfly #monarchbutterflies #monarchsofinstagram #monarchbutterfliesofinstagram #portagelaprairie #manitoba #manitobaphotography #canada #butterfly #butterflies #beautyofnature #naturelover #loverofnature #samsung9 #samsungphoto

Today my budding naturalist saved an injured monarch in the parking lot of @dukefarms . It stayed on him the whole walk into the orientation center and then we went and gathered some golden rod and purple asters and the employees of Duke aka the butterfly doctors got a net for it. It may have had a broken wing, or it may have just been breaking down if it was at the end of its short life cycle (2-6 weeks). At any rate the naturalist at Duke retrieved some milk weed for it, and put it under a butterfly net. Hopefully she (we determined it was a female) will lay an caterpillar egg on the milk weed and monarch life cycle will go on. 🐛🦋 We love monarch season at Duke each year! . . . #monarchbutterfly #savethemonarchs #dukefarms #exploringnaturewithchildren #homeschool #chilhoodunplugged #getoutside #monarchcaterpillar #thehomegrownpreschooler #naturelover #charlottemason #charlottemasonearlyyears

@jordansparkx

❤️🦋🥰 #monarchbutterfly It takes monarchs about a month to go through the stages from egg to adult, and it is hormones circulating within the body that trigger the changes that occur during metamorphosis. Once adults, monarchs will live another two to six weeks in the summer. Monarchs that migrate live all winter, or about six to nine months. 🧡🦋💙💚 #liveyourdream today we saw hundreds ; it was beautiful ☺️
