    2. How wonderful!! I can only imagine what that must be like, to stand (or sit!) and view those beautiful butterflies before their remarkable migration. I haven't seen any monarchs through Austin yet, but any day now! I'm looking forward to your posts!

  7. Wow, it looks like a weird pine cone but maybe Giga has the right answer.

    1. Yes, Giga, Lisa, and Tina are correct. These are clusters of Monarch butterflies in a sanctuary in Mexico! Stay tuned for more coverage. :)

    1. Good for you! It will take special efforts by all of us to save the Monarch migration.

  14. I am so excited to hear about your trip. At first glance, the photo looks like a pine cone. Then you really look, you see butterflies.

    1. Yes, indeed. The Monarch sanctuaries in Mexico. So hard to describe--even with pictures.

  16. OMG, i thought it is like that also when they are already in the US, but when i read the comments, i learned. I wonder what object or plant they are all clinging to! The scene is not just amazing, incredibly beautiful, but also a bit scary!

    1. It is mind-boggling to think about all of those butterflies clinging together on the branches. The trees are Oyamel Fir trees, which I mention in my next post.

    1. Indeed, it was. I went to see the Monarchs, which was incredible, but the rest of the trip was amazing, too!
