About those butterflies

Seeing more that the usual number of monarch butterflies? The Ohio Division of Wildlife explains:

"Eastern monarch butterflies are now flying through Ohio on their way from summer breeding areas to overwintering sites in Mexico.

Monarchs may travel 50 to 100 miles per day, making this one of the most impressive migrations in the animal kingdom. The journey may take them thousands of miles before they reach their destination."
