Painted Lady Migration, 2009

In April 2005 these butterflies passed through our area in swarms that made it seem like it was snowing.

In 2009 the first shot I took was in January...March 25th I saw the next wave and they have not stopped.

At one point I counted 75 in approx. 60 seconds...Seems to be snowing butterflies!
