Did you see them today? The wonderful migrating Monarch Butterflies. I have been lucky to see them for a couple of years now. Love watching them crossing the road as I drive and I waited in front of my house for a glimpse of them to fly by.
Monarchs are especially noted for their lengthy annual migration. In North America they make massive southward migrations starting in August until the first frost. A northward migration takes place in the spring. The monarch is the only butterfly that migrates both north and south as the birds do on a regular basis. But no single individual makes the entire round trip. Female monarchs deposit eggs for the next generation during these migrations.
Here is a close up. It doesn't do it justice.
Hope you got to see them.
