Default Monarch Migration

Took these pics in September as the Monarch Butterflys were grouping up to head south for the winter. There were about 60 of the in the trees but couldnt get close without most of them flying away.

Cool! Nice photo op. Even though the number of butterflies all together in picture 1 is pretty amazing I like the closeup view of picture 2 better.

tikamidnight,

Spectacular picture, irresistable composition; superb, best multibutterfly picture I've ever seen

Estethic as well as well as pedagogic value. Exposure with many possibilities. Congratulations

Torgny

And the format - square - brilliant

And the somewhat dented(?) birch(?) leaves
