Every year, millions and millions of Monarch butterflies migrate from Mexico up to Canada and back down again, and when this magical phenomenon passes through the states, the sights are incredible. This fall, you’ll catch millions of butterflies traveling through Connecticut as one of their migration super highways passes directly through our state. Once they travel down to the south, they overwinter until spring arrives. This phenomenon is highly studied by experts and can only be caught at certain times of year, and this is it. Keep your eyes peeled as millions upon millions of Monarch butterflies grace our state this fall.

Have you ever seen a swarm of Monarch butterflies travel through Connecticut? Was it amazing? We’d love to hear about your thoughts and experiences in the comments, and don’t forget to then go share your butterfly migration pictures with us in our Connecticut Nature Lovers group on Facebook, or by tagging us using the hashtag #onlyinconnecticut on Instagram for a chance to be featured!
