It is getting to be that time of year when the Monarch butterflies start to think about the journey to Mexico. Each year I go back to Pennsylvania in fall, I drive along their route, seeing hundreds of them following along the interstate. I look forward to the butterfly migration, but never was in Mexico at the right time to see where the Monarchs spend the winter. I did see a number of Monarchs earlier this year, but not as many during the height of summer. A few were nectaring in my garden, more in the meadows.
For some interesting information on butterflies, see my post Butterflies – Two in One. It makes one think about just how complex nature can be and also how amazing. This butterfly may even remember being a caterpillar.
