the monarchy

When we were at Pismo Beach for Christmas break, we met up with the Monarch butterflies, who were also having a holiday stopover. There were 28,000 of them, according to the docents at the wildlife preserve. They were snuggling high up on the branches, gathering their wits about them before they took on the rest of their trip, I think. I went back the next day for more pictures, but it was a little colder and they were closed up and taking no chances. It was surprising, amazing and more than a little bit magical.
