Monach Butterflies

Long Island Photos by Alida Thorpe
Monach Butterflies are migrating through and over Long Island at this time, every year.
Have you seen them? Probably, since they are so numerous, and colorful, and seem to be flying everywhere.
Did you notice that they all seem to be going in the same direction?
The next time you see one, watch where he goes. See if his fellow travelers follow.
He may stop for a snack on a local plant and then move on.

Hey! I saw them flying towards the west in Fire island, there were so many, i ahve never noticed they migrate. Good information!! I was wondering why so many butterflies were flying over my beach house.
