  1. Amy, we were at a Monarch butterfly sanctuary the other day and I found myself chatting with a woman visiting from Texas. She was telling me about the Monarch migration through Texas and how it is a relatively recent phenomena. According to her, Texas and Florida are relatively “new” on the flight path, and it’s very exciting. Your photos seem to show that you are doing well with them. That’s exciting!

    • Thank you for sharing the pleasant conversation you has with the woman from Texas. I didn’t know it a new flight path, that is very exciting.
