Fall of the Monarch

Migrating monarch butterfly

This has nothing to do with the dethroning of a king. Rather, it is the end of the migration for the black-and-orange monarch butterflies. We see many of these butterflies passing through Pennsylvania in September on their way to Mexico. Just when the first monarchs are reaching their wintering grounds in Mexico, a few stragglers are still passing through even this late in October.
