What is the average size of a butterfly?

Size: Butterflies come in a variety of sizes. The world's smallest known species, the blue pygmy found in southern California, has a wingspan of just over half an inch. The largest species, New Guinea's Queen Alexandra's birdwing, can measure up to twelve inches from wingtip to wingtip.

Furthermore, how far do Monarch butterflies fly in a day?

Migration and Overwintering. Monarchs can travel between 50-100 miles a day; it can take up to two months to complete their journey. The farthest ranging monarch butterfly recorded traveled 265 miles in one day.

Do butterflies fly high?

As far as we know, butterfly speed has not been measured! Slow flying butterflies probably fly five miles per hour or a little faster. During fall migration, migrating Monarchs (Danaus plexippus) have been seen flying by tall buildings such as the Empire State Building at more than 1,000+ feet.
