Migration of the Painted Ladies!

The Painted Ladies Butterflies are migrating, and we're right in the middle of one swarm! There are hundreds, if not thousands, of butterflies flying by...from south to north! It's the first time we've seen this phenomenon and it's pretty exciting!

At first, we thought they were Monarch butterflies, but they were smaller than I had expected Monarchs to be. After comparing pictures of both Monarchs and Painted Ladies at the Butterfiles and Moths website, above, we've come to the conclusion that they were, indeed, Painted Ladies.
