Monarchs in the park

Missy and I were wandering around in Hawera and went to the park for a walk.
We found this lovely surprise of orange color in the trees.  I had seen a larger group of them
in the same park in May of 2013.

A fantastic sight. We don't get Monarchs over here - well not the butterfly sort anyway!

Fine photos of these monarch butterflies. I wonder if they are not gathering for a migration somewhere. We sometimes see them here in the fall when they are on their way to Mexico.
