Monarchs — on their way through SMA

Having lunch on our roof yesterday we were entertained by a steady stream of Monarchs fluttering North over the City, some stopping briefly to feed on our flowers. We particularly love this, as we will see them again when we return to upstate New York in a month or so, where they will again feed on our flowers there before returning to Mexico in the late fall. No single butterfly ever makes the entire five-thousand mile round-trip, but hands over the next step of their never-ending journey to their offspring.
