Monarch Migration!

The photograph above was taken several years ago. I am posting it, because this time of year sees the migration of the Monarch Butterfly to Pacific Grove, CA.

The three photographs below were taken in November 2013, while I was at the Monarch Sanctuary, in Pacific Grove. I tried getting captures of individual butterflies, as opposed to a photo of massive numbers of butterflies on trees and flowers.

The beauties begin in late October, early November, and can be seen up until February. You can read all about their migration, here, at the Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History.

To be amongst the natural order of life, and within the migratory pattern, was humbling, to say the least.

I hope you have a lovely rest of your Sunday!
