Annual Migration

Living where we do in Southwestern Ontario we are blessed to be on a migration route for so many species. This years Monarch Butterfly migration is beginning early but I figured I would share this photo taken earlier today. There is nothing more impressive than seeing the sky cloud over with thousand of these creatures. Plant milkweed to help them out!

What a beautiful sight, DM.  I remember all the ones back in Michigan I used to see as well as the milkweed plants that grew by the creeks along side the road.

Yes, they do.  There is a place up here, can't remember where right now, where they congregate.

wave Gidday DM! Those monarch butterflies are truly beautiful - thank you for sharing! cool
At work, I save all the spiders - making sure to take them out to the garden, before anything happens to them.
Also, I watched 2 baby birds growing in their nest recently (with the help of their mother!) - then the other week, they had flown from the nest! So, now I miss  saying, "hello babies" to them - oh well, it was lovely while it lasted! smile

Lovely!  We see just a few as they pass through on their migration south at the end of summer.
