  • Challenge Question #4

    The weather is getting warmer and the sun is out longer, so the days
    are longer. The flowers start blooming. The monarchs have instincts to
    leave Mexico and start flying north. The females are mating, then are
    looking for milkweed. Since they can't fly in cold weather, they must
    wait until the weather is warmer. They left in the fall because
    northern winters are too cold.
