Recently saw an ad for an inn in Santa Cruz that mentioned the Monarch butterflies which migrate to winter in California at this time of year. One of the sites mentioned was the Natural Bridges Preserve. I know they migrate closer to me in Southern California as well. In October a 70 mile-wide swarm of butterflies showed up on weather radar in Denver, Colorado. You might automatically think of Monarchs but these were Painted Ladies which look a bit like Monarchs but are smaller.
The first video is by Bear SF showing two places to see Monarchs in California on You Tube:
A swarm of butterflies, a swarm of dragonflies, or a swarm of honeybees; better than a swarm of locusts or a swarm of fleas.
