Western Monarch Butterflies, Pismo Beach, CA

Beri and I headed over to the Pismo Beach Western Monarch Butterfly Grove yesterday morning. These delicate creatures were nearly non-existent last year but have come back strong this year and have scientists a bit baffled. I'm just glad they are back! A shaft of sunlight broke through the marine layer and painted them as the were cloistered for warmth. What a beautiful sight!
