Every year the monarch butterflies gather in late Summer to early Fall preparing to make their journey South. This journey is amazing. The migration North takes three generations to make the distance while the journey South is only one generation. This is a trip I would love to take for a magazine; to photograph the extra large monarchs in Mexico.
Today’s photograph is one of the first I’ve seen this season. It’s a male, and it landed to rest up in the 20 mph winds it was fighting through.
