Monarch Migration WW


Used to see large "flocks" of migrating Monarchs - not so many in my part of the heartland anymore. Some blame pesticides and wind turbines.

How gorgeous!! I love how you softly blended your main photo with all the beautiful butterflies and then the close ups of the other ones. What a sight that must be!!

Oh this is gorgeous Betty and must be a sight to see!  Your photos are beautiful and I like how you blended the larger and framed the smaller and your extractions are wonderful.   I see Monarchs occasionally here and once in a while we’ll get a bunch that must have lost their way, but this is amazing.   Lovely work - gorgeous page.   :)

Oh, I love this!  I went to Mexico in 2007 and there weren't near this many in the wintering sites.  I hope they can make a comeback.  I am planting large flower rows on the farm (in Oregon) each year as a food source for all the little critters.

I love this page. I saw a film on the migration and it was wonderful.  Monarch caterpillars only eat milkweed plants (Asclepias spp.), and monarch butterflies need milkweed to lay their eggs. Your photos are wonderful and how incredible it is that you got to see the butterflies migrate. Love how you blended the photo into the background paper. Beautiful!
