Monarch butterfly migration at the NC beach [View all]

We saw a few Monarchs when we arrived on Sunday...but they're all over the yard here today! I first tried getting
some shots from the deck because the bushes are probably 10-12 feet high. But I wasn't satisfied, so i went down
in the yard. All these shots were taken over my head--anywhere from a foot or two to at least four or five.

We have a beautiful Carolina blue sky today..and this guy was willing to pose, somewhat shyly.

These two were doing what they need to do...it takes four generations of Monarchs to make the round trip migration.

This one was definitely feeding on the flowers

And this was the best shot I could get of open wings.
