some of the Google queries I have tried

"flight duration of a butterfly"

The Incredible Journey of the Butterflies

Many butterflies migrate over long distances. Particularly famous
migrations are those of the Monarch butterfly from Mexico to northern
USA and southern Canada, a distance of about 4000 to 4800 km (25003000 miles).

The round trip takes two or three generations to complete, because of
the short individual life span

Butterflies can only fly if their body temperature is above 86 degrees
