The sheer wings of this finger puppet, silk screened with the realistic orange and black markings of the Monarch Butterfly, flutter gracefully up and down with the motion of your hand. Its stretchy nylon fabric body fits fingers of many sizes.
The monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus) is among the most recognized, studied, and loved of all of North America’s insects. The annual migration cycle of the monarch butterfly has been described
as the most spectacular in the insect world, an “endangered natural
phenomenon”. This species and its migration are dependent upon conservation of habitats in all three North American countries: Canada, the United States, and Mexico.
