To witness this pilgrimage of Monarch butterflies in Mexico defies your wildest imagination. Shrink down starlings that blacken the sky after the grape harvest, turn them into butterflies, and quadruple their numbers.

Monarch Butterflies by Elmira Amirova. Before metamorphosis the larva survive by eating the milkweed plant. This adaptation that monarch butterflies evolved protects them during their imago stage from predators such as birds. We saw them in mass like this...beautiful!
Monarch Butterflies by Elmira Amirova~ These butterflies amaze people throughout milleniums. Wonderful little creature overcomes thousands of kilometres from Canada to Mexico every year to pass the winter. It is a marvellous repetitive process which still cannot be explained. Hundreds of thousands of butterflies gather together covering a great number of trees and making a splendid pattern similar to a live dress.
