Crawl to Safety After a Storm
If you visit a colony on a cold day you might see monarchs on the
ground. Strong winds and heavy rain can blow monarchs down from
their clusters. If the monarchs are cold, it may take hours —
or even days — for them to return to the safety of the cluster.
Slowly but surely, the monarchs pictured here are climbing back
to the trees after falling during a storm.
