Monarchs In Mexico!

From November to March each year, you can be witness toof the most spectacular natural phenomena in the forested mountains west of Mexico City: Monarch butterflies wintering in Mexico. These migrating monarch butterflies travel in colonies of about 20 million insects and will travel between 80-120 nautical miles per day, depending on the wind and other weather conditions.

The monarch butterflies settle in theOyamelfir tree forests which are situated west of Mexico City; alongeastern perimeter of the Mexican state of Michoacán, also bordering the state of Mexico. Once here, the butterflies cluster on the tree trunks and remain in the region for the winter.

As the sun heats the day, some of the butterflies will flutter into the forests and return to the tree trunks when the air cools in the evening.Mexperience.September 2018
