Every fall beautiful Monarch butterflies make their way through San Angelo on their way to Mexico. Some years there are a lot and some years not so many. This year is a good year. John Curtis and I met our friends, Connor and Shelby (and their mommies and babies) at the lily ponds today to see if we could spot some. We weren't disappointed. They were so beautiful flying everywhere over our heads and hanging from trees by the hundreds. While the mommies were in awe, the little ones enjoyed chasing each other and sword fighting with sticks. The pictures don't do the butterflies justice and it was hard to get them with the kids as most of them were flying over our heads.
It's hard to see them, but the tree behind us is covered in butterflies.
