Monarch Migration

I drove across a "sea" of monarchs fluttering across Goose Lake Prairie to a concentration area near by. I was hoping to find the trees they would drip from as I've seen on T.V. and I did! It was an awesome site!

Amazing Monarch site Hannibal. We've planted out swan plants in our courtyard here in NZ in hopes of attracting Monarch's this summer.
