I was able to see them last year. The DBG is really beautiful this time of year and the monarchs are the cherry on top!

Gorgeous! I would love to watch this Monarch Butterfly thing. Lucky you.

What a lovely capture. We once had a Russian Olive tree that attracted Monarchs like moths to a flame. Have you ever been to Mexico to see them?

They seem to like the same mesquite twig. Or maybe they just like each other.

Before I went away you could see individual Monarchs fluttering their way south but i have never seen a bunch of them together. How lucky you are and a great shot!
