Sorry about my recent silence but, inspired by my lovely new jacket by Cher at Sew Fun Doll Clothes, I decided to go view the monarch butterflies during their northward migration.
Monarch butterflies are especially noted for their lengthy annual migration. In North America a northward migration takes place in the spring. They make massive southward migrations starting in August until the first frost. The monarch is the only butterfly that migrates both north and south as the birds do on a regular basis.
