What do hundred of thousands of Monarch butterflies look like?


We recently returned from the mountains of central Mexico where hundreds of millions of Monarch butterflies fly 4000 kilometres from Canada and eastern US to breed.

Standing in a paddock surrounded by hundreds of thousands of butterflies is quite a spectacular experience.

Of course like so many other species around the world this migration is under threat from man.

Check my video but it doesn’t do justice to John Varga’s incredible pictures which you can see tonight on Seven News and Sunrise tomorrow.
