Thanks to Angela and her Friday-night wine dependency, I stayed home last night drinking detox tea and watching PBS specials. Not that this was a bad thing.
Despite being designed to be taken out by a strong gust of wind, millions of Monarch butterflies migrate from Canade to Mexico every year. What an amazing job it must be to just film a mob of butterflies as they travel south. Even more amazing are the photos I found on Flickr from people that have witnessed the Monarchs as they reach their destination:
Makes sense that while I was in Honduras people kept commenting on my “butterfly” (actually moth) tattoos…Mexico is on my top 5 places to visit – looks like I’ll have to time it to coincide with the Monarch migration!
