Here at Fieldhaven, we're on one of the main migrating paths in central Illinois for monarch butterflies. When I was little, they would come in their thousands, covering the trees. Now they are few. Most years they don't even flock anymore, so it's exciting to see even a few dozen of them chaining up like this. There are more fluttering around overhead today. I managed to catch these resting in the shade, so it's not a great picture, but you can see the density of butterflies.
