Monarch butterfly

In this Aug. 13, 2012 photo, a monarch butterfly, the state butterfly of Vermont and Minnesota, perches on a tree branch in Montpelier, Vt. Scientists say the population of Monarch butterflies in Minnesota has crashed because of extreme weather in southern states. The butterflies migrate north from Mexico as the weather warms during the summer and leave by about mid-August. (AP Photo/Toby Talbot, File)
