These beautifully designed pads are perfect for any bird or butterfly lover alike.

Every year, millions of these beautiful butterflies embark on the 4,800 km mass migration from as far north as Canada down into Mexico and the California coast during autumn. They are the only insect to migrate to a warmer climate that is 4,800km away, each year. This truly amazing feat have people asking - how do the monarchs know when to fly south, how do they know which way to fly, how fast, how far and how high do they travel and why do they migrate?
