Monarchs Migrating

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.
