Monarch butterflies march through Jersey Shore
It's a long trip and it takes a while to get to their destination, but the Monarch Butterflies are making their way through New Jersey. You may have noticed if you live at the Jersey Shore or were visiting like I was, they were there.
From Seaside Heights and Seaside Park, through LBI and Atlantic City, Ventnor, Margate and beyond they could be seen in pretty good numbers. Not clouds of them like in the one photo but on trees and bushes and in traffic on the roads too.
They come through the Jersey Shore after a cold front at the end of September and early October just like we had this past weekend. I noticed them pretty plentiful in Ventnor on Saturday, but not as thick as in years past.
We still have a couple of weeks left before the migration through our area is done. So if you're down within a couple of blocks from the beach from Seaside on south keep an eye out for them in big numbers.
It's something to see as they make their annual trek to Southern Mexico. Yeah, like I said, it's a long trip they're on!
