Monarch Butterfly Sleeps Through Migration
Originally published on Mon November 5, 2012 12:39 pm
RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. A monarch butterfly in upstate New York slept through its migration, but it had a chance to reschedule its flight with Southwest Airlines. Maraleen Manos-Jones discovered the late bloomer in her garden still in its cocoon and realized it missed nature's boarding call. Today, she travels with the monarch in a Tupperware container to the San Antonio Botanical Gardens, where the butterfly can join other monarchs on their migration to Mexico. It's MORNING EDITION.
