Default A Traveler

I saw quite a few Monarchs on the butterfly bushes a few days ago. I guess they are traveling on their migration route.

Beautiful shot Clint! I watched a chrysalis hatch a week ago and he flew off to one of the wintering colonies. I hope he makes it.

Thanks Saly - it amazes me that such a fragile looking creature can travel such great distances.
