Fly like a butterfly

This week I met some long distance travelers in Pacific Grove, California.  The Monarch butterflies come over 800 miles south from British Columbia, Canada to spend the winter near the coast where it is warmer and there is no snow. The butterflies can travel between 50 and 100 miles a day. They float like a bird with the wind pushing them instead of using their wings all day long. They sleep in the leaves of trees, snuggled close together for warmth. After the winter is over, they will have babies who will fly up to Canada to where their parents  once livedButterflies in the middle of Canada fly all the way to Mexico to spend their winters there.   Purrs, Gulliver
