Yesterday when we were in Pier Village, I saw hundreds of migrating monarch butterflies. What a thrill, something I have never seen before. They were everywhere but primarily flying above us and landing only occasionally. Those landings were brief. They are fourth generation monarch's on there way to Mexico and California.
Some people think Monarch's are the most beautiful butterfly.
They are considered "king" of the butterflies, hence the name "monarch".
I think they are the most recognized butterfly.
They rarely landed but when they did, it was to enjoy the goldenrod.
Fourth generation monarch's live for six to eight months.
I took over 50 pictures in a matter of minutes.
If anyone is interested in more information, you can find some great monarch facts here.
