Event: Monarch Fall Roost Duration: 01 hours 45 minutes Number: 70
Date of Sighting: 10/08/2013 Latitude: 33.1131 Longitude: -97.0057
Town: Lake Dallas State/Province: TX Country:
Have been seeing Monarchs in the yard for a few weeks now so decided to drive around town to see if I could spot any others. This is a fruit tree (why it's blooming in the fall I have no idea). The entire tree (only a section of it is shown here) was alive with Monarchs, floating, fluttering, hanging, really was quite a sight! I counted approximately 70 butterflies on the tree but many others were flying within the area. Tree was in a vacant lot close to downtown Lake Dallas. I don't know the name of the tree.
