Monarch Butterflies Cluster in Santa Cruz California

View On Black


To see the real detail of this image I recommend you click on the "All

Sizes" button above and view the original size image. As mentioned in the

previous image, the Monarch Butterflies are seen here clustering together in

a large group. They come to small coves where the trees grow near the coast

to stay warm during the winter months. If the temperature is below 60F

degrees you are likely to find clusters of over one thousand butterflies at

Santa Cruz's Bridges State Park. It's truly one of the most impressive and

beautiful events you will see in the insect world.
