Monarch Butterflies (Danaus plexippus): Monarch butterflies partake of a yearly migration, sometimes traveling thousands of miles to areas in Mexico, Cuba, and Florida for the winter. Once they arrive they cluster together for warmth, providing each other with heat and protection. These clusters can become quite large, with butterflies completely covering trees and vegetation.
