Artist's Description

I have never seen so many butterflies in Quebec & Ontario as I have this summer. Perhaps it’s because of the warm temperatures we’ve experienced. However, as temperatures drop in the fall, the Monarchs begin their journey south for the winter. Canadian Monarch butterflies travel south to the coast of California. The migration distance of ~5,000 kms is truly amazing considering these are such small insects. Unbelievably, once the weather warms up again, the Monarch will return north to the exact same locations where they originally migrated from. Monarchs are known to travel as fast as 30 miles per hour. Somehow, those little wings work miracles.
