Monarch - 6x5 Riker Mount
Monarch Butterfly (Danaus plexippus)
- Wingspan: 3 1/2 inches
- Origin: Found worldwide
Probably the most well-known butterfly, the Monarch's amber wings are truly iconic. Both male and female Monarchs are extremely similar-looking and about the same size. Generally, the males are slightly more vibrant in color, while the females have a thicker, more pronounced vein pattern (the black lines) and many more white dots at the edge of the wings. Both are equally beautiful!
Pictured here is the male.
