A Photo a Day of Christchurch New Zealand

Monarch Butterflies in Woodham Park


Each year I visit the parks around Christchurch to see the magnificent sight that is thousands of Monarch butterflies clustering together in the trees. I never tire of this! And, I always get the opportunity to introduce new people to this phenomenon – usually people in the park who wonder what I’m photographing up in the trees and then when they realise they are in shock at not having ever seen it before.

Here’s a little video I also made of the butterflies and placed onto my Facebook page:

    What beautiful shots! I’ve never seen butterflies of any type do that.
