The leaning tower of butterflies: Mass of Monarchs in Mexico makes the heart…

Their numbers were devastated a year ago when severe storms hit their colonies. But now the Monarch butterfly has made a spectacular comeback having more than doubled in size this winter.

    Butterflies!!! Monarch butterflies line a branch of a bush in the Pedro Herrada butterfly sanctuary in the Mexican state of Michoacan. Monarch butterfly colonies in Mexico more than doubled in size this winter after bad storms devastated their numbers a year ago, conservationists say, although the migrating insect remains under threat.

Monarchs. When I was a child during a long walk, I was walking under a bridge and found a bunch of monarchs dead in the same place. It was so unusual, it was sad and beautiful at the same time.

    From Western Maryland--keep looking for honeybees-a few on the clover in my lawn--so glad to see the clover growing. Also planted milkweed in my perennial flower bed in hopes of helping out the Monarchs.

    Had 25 monarch caterpillars on one milk weed plant. Watched several form chrysalis then into the butterfly. Unfortunately also saw praying mantis feasting on the chrysalis.

Monarch Butterfly on a Sunflower. Beautiful.

Monarchs in Their Millions (Mexico). Canopies of golden-orange butterflies cover the forests and hillsides in the Reserva Mariposa Monarca (Monarch Butterfly Reserve), perhaps Mexico’s most astonishing yearly natural phenomenon. It’s the kind of annual event to plan your trip around – November to March.
