Why Are There So Many Butterflies In California?

 

If you live in California, you're not tripping out, there really are a lot of butterflies everywhere you go!

They're traveling from Mexico!

It’s part of their normal movement north from the dry deserts of Mexico to the lush Cascade Range in the Pacific Northwest.

There's a documentary on Netflix that Will Smith narrates called "One Strange Rock" and in one of the episodes they talk about the butterfly migration!
