Monarch Butterflies at Sperling Preserve

Every winter, the Monarch Butterflies migrate to warmer climates, usually in Mexico. But there is a premier overwintering site near where I live in California - Sperling Preserve on Ellwood Mesa. Nestled in the preserve is a grove of eucalyptus trees, where the Monarch's hang like leaves for most of the winter. Beyond the preserve is a bluff overlooking the Pacific. Our butterflies definitely have good taste. ;-)

These photos were taken in November and January. To see all the pics, come visit my gallery at http://www.loopfree.net/gallery/main.php/v/khrome/
