Nature, Up Close and Beautiful

At first glance what appears to be a tree full of dying leaves
Upon closer inspection is
Nature's paint brush
Migration, alive, up close
Beautiful
Stopping only briefly as they continue their journey south

That is sooo cool. Have you sent your information in to Journey North? I can't remember the website but you can record monarch sitings there and watch the migration. Not as good as seeing it like you did.

Yes, we did report it to Journey North. We were one of two in Iowa at the time we reported.

We also like to watch the migration on the site. It is amazing how far they can go.
