Butterfly Migration through Reno/Sparks, Nevada! Easter 2009

Just wondering if anyone else in the Sparks area had noticed a huge amount of Painted Ladies in the sky yesterday. Lots and Lots of Flutterbys. πŸ™‚ They were all heading WNW.

  1. Yes, Greg was out in my front yard and he called us saying that there was a steady stream of them fluttering down my street…They didn’t seem to want to stop…they were on a mission.

  2. We are going to a butterfly exhibit next week. πŸ˜€ I cannot wait! We historically used to see a LOT of monarchs in the summer, but a blight in recent years apparently had a devastating effect on the population. What a treat two summers ago to see hundreds of them, stopping to rest near a lakeshore we were visiting. πŸ™‚ They are now spotted more regularly again, hereabouts.

    Your shot is amazing!
