Botanical Fine Art Painting, Nature,Butterfly "MILKWEED MONARCH" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe

The milkweed plant genus (asclepias) is the life source for monarch butterflies. The monarch lays one egg per leaf and can lay up to 500 eggs. The milkweed will host the monarch through all its life stages. It belongs to a group of butterflies, called Danadiae, which are called “milkweed butterflies.” The milkweed plant contains a sticky, milk-like fluid that has a bitter taste. This helps the monarch protect itself from predators.
