Fun Facts: The vast majority of a butterflyâ€™s life cycle includes four stages of life: egg, larva, pupa and adult. To become the beautiful parts that make up the butterfly, it must go through "complete metamorphosis", where the tissues, limbs and organs of a caterpillar have all been changed by the time the pupa is finished. When in the fourth and final stage of their lives, adult butterflies are constantly on the look out to reproduce and when a female lays its eggs on the host plant, the butterfly life cycle will start all over again. Depending on the type of butterfly, the life cycle may take anywhere from one month to a whole year. With most monarchs living from two to six weeks as an adult butterfly, it is noted that the Monarch's life span that their migration is the key to its yearly life cycle. The total time frame for one butterfly's life cycle (one generation) is about 6-8 weeksâ€¦egg, caterpillar, chrysalis, butterfly, with an average of one to two weeks in the adult butterfly stage. Which is quite the miracle when you think about it and also sad that such a beautiful creature has such a short life span in the adult stage. The monarch butterfly which is native to the Americas can travel thousands of miles south-west to winter in Mexico. With a reverse migration in the spring. It has also recently been shown that the British painted lady undertakes a 9,000-mile round trip in a series of steps by up to six successive generations, from tropical Africa to the Arctic Circleâ€‰anâ€‰almost double the length of the famous migrations undertaken by monarch. Butterflies navigate using a time-compensated sun compass. They can see polarized light and therefore orient even in cloudy conditions. Another example of nature at its finest. Wikipedia
