totally gorgeous!!!! They migrate from Mexico to Santa Barbara.....and there are sanctuaries here...they cluster like is astonishing!! they look like leaves....and then you can see ; they are butterflies clustering on the Eucalyptus leaves!!

They need milkweed! I plant Milkweed...and I find them laying their eggs...the caterpillars eat the leaves of the milkweed plant......(my gardener was horrified....I told him that was the point!)

Then the caterpillar makes a chrysalis and then the monarch butterfly emerges!
