The Return of the Monarchs - 9/27/2017

This photo of Monarch butterflies clinging to a tree was taken at our home Tuesday when a thousand or more Monarch butterflies swarmed in our yard, probably in preparation for their return flight to Mexico for the winter. We hope this is a sign that the effort to save the Monarch is showing results due to less mowing of roadsides and ditches that preserve the milkweed the Monarch depends on for food.
