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!

Lovely...I'd love to see this live
grazie for sharing
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.
Just curious Eddie don't they come through California?
Yes, they do. There is a place up here, can't remember where right now, where they congregate.

Gidday DM! Those monarch butterflies are truly beautiful - thank you for sharing!
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!

Hey DM!...just wishing you a "Happy 1st Forum 'birthday'" my friend!
Doesn't time fly, when one is having so much FUN here at Jamie's forum!
CHEERS (here's a virtual *beer* from me!),
Lovely! We see just a few as they pass through on their migration south at the end of summer.
