Monarch butterflies overwinter in many locations. Is San Diego one of them?
I created a video documenting the metamorphosis of Andy.
32 photos of the butterflies I visited at Nevada Bugs & Butterflies in September.
I had a lot of fun chasing those monarchs around. The fun really never ends when monarchs are fluttering by you in such large numbers.
The highlight of the visit is the tagging and release of the monarchs. Late September 2014 is the end of the season at the butterfly house. The tags that are places on these monarchs are for the Southwest Monarch Study. The Southwest Monarch Study is a tag and recovery program for monarchs that are in the Southwest migration.
The Western migration is a mystery. Tagging will help us understand where monarchs migrate in the West.
I visited a great park along the Truckee River. I walked a few miles of paths. There are both bike paths and nature trails. The nature trail is very rustic. At one point I had to dart away from a snake in the grass.
