  4. Antonette - I didn't know their name, either, until the local newspaper wrote about them yesterday. Yes, Stacey - the migration was magical. There were dozens fluttering around me while I stood under that tree last Friday.

  16. It does seem that way. I went for a walk with my daughter and granddaughter to see a neighborhood butterfly which astoundingly had literally hundreds of butterflies fluttering around bushes with purple flowers, Like aircraft more kept flying in, hovering and landing to sip nectar.
