A co-worker pulled me aside earlier today and told me to look out the window -
At first I didn't notice anything - and then she pointed "there" and "there" and "there"
What we saw was a TON of butterflies working their way up the 134 - it was crazy - I haven't seen anything like it
The Pasadena Star News wrote about it -
About 1 billion butterflies, known as Painted Ladies, are flying at speeds of 20 miles per hour in a northerly direction from the deserts of Mexico to reach breeding grounds in Oregon, said Tom Merriman, a director of Butterfly Farms, a nonprofit in north San Diego County dedicated to restoring the health of butterflies as pollinators.
“This kind of large migration is unusual,”
. “They’ve laid tons of eggs in the desert, and so there may be over a billion butterflies.”
