All of my life, I have absolutely loved butterflies. The fact they start off as caterpillars and then turn into a beautiful butterfly enthralls me. Monarch butterflies are really a true beauty with their bright orange and red wings. Every year, they make the move to migrate south from Canada to Mexico in the fall, then they make their way back to Canada in the summer. Because of this migration, thousands of monarchs will fly by and congregate in colonies where they cover the limbs and branches of trees. Sometimes the weight of the butterflies actually cause the trees to sag. Check out this amazing migration.
Are these a bunch of leaves? You might be surprised as to what this really is.
It’s hard to tell what exactly is covering the ground here.
This almost looks just like the bark of the tree.
Even a closer look makes it hard to tell what this is. Even when you zoom in a little, it’s not clear.
Are those mushrooms? Moss? Leaves?
Any guesses? It’s none of those things!
Wrong! Those are beautiful butterflies! TONS of them!
