Each year, in September-October, thousands of Monarch butterflies migrate from North America's colder regions to warmer climates in California and Mexico, to hibernate on tree branches and trunks. This trip, called "one of the most spectacular natural phenomena in the world", spans to about 2,000 miles each way, each leg taking up to two months to complete.
One of very few insects to migrate, it is believed that Monarchs use the position of the sun to tell them when to migrate and the Earth's magnetic field for navigation.
