A Monarch’s Tale
Exploring the epic life cycle of these black-and-orange butterflies in a clip from the new DVD, Audubon VideoGuide to Butterflies Common and Endangered.

Female monarchs lay hundreds of eggs, usually depositing each one on a different milkweed plant. After several life stages, monarchs stretch their wings, ready to take on a journey that can be thousands of miles.

For a video of the monarch life cycle, click on the image below.

For more information on the clip above, check out the Audubon VideoGuide to Butterflies Common and Endangered, a new DVD available from MasterVision.
