Sept. 18 & 19, 2010 saw one of the largest Monarch Butterfly migrations ever witnessed at Cape May with estimates of 1/2 to 1 million butterflies migrating over the 2 day period. I was there on the 18th and experienced this incredible phenomenon. Here are some of my photos of that eventful day. None can do justice to the experience of being there though. Other galleries will contain more butterfly species also migrating and some very close-up macro shots of a Praying Mantis.
Enjoy!!!

Guestbook for Monarchs at Cape May
Marge(non-registered)
It was an amazing day in Cape May September 2010! The butterflies, not only monarchs but some rarer species as well, were incredibly, literally everywhere. The lighting as you can see from Charlie's photographs was amazing. Amazing is just the perfect word to describe this beautiful display of nature at one of its happiest hours. Charlie I am so happy you captured as many pictures as you did. They are wonderful. thanks!!!! Love, Marge
