Arthro-Pod Episode 29: The Migration of Painted Lady Butterflies

Tune in to today's show where Jody and Jonathan chat about painted lady butterflies and the magnificent migration that has been occurring. Painted ladies, aka cosmopolitans, are found on nearly every continent on Earth and are a handsome mixture of orange, brown, and white.
While the monarch butterfly is the most famous migratory insect, painted ladies are also capable of showing off and traversing the country over successive generations.
