The Amazing Butterfly - so Fragile and so Strong

I wish I was travelling with our beautiful monarch butterflies to warm and sunny Mexico.  There are some great articles on the migration and how they even tagged these wonderful creatures.  The funny thing is when you type into google "monarch butterfly flight to Mexico" the first search that comes up is WestJet lol.

The flight is becoming more and more difficult for them as their natural plants especially the milkweed, which they love, are being killed off with urbanization.  Next spring, help save our butterflies by planting a milkweed plant in your garden.  Here is a current article on their migration 3000 miles coasting on the winds.  The world truly is an amazing place.
