Haiku: Hurry…Monarchs to Mexico or California

Fall approaches fast
Hurry cat and make your wings
Ready for your trip

“The mystery of migrating monarch butterflies has captured the attention of people throughout the world. East of the continental divide in North America, monarchs generally migrate to central Mexico from as far away as Ontario, Canada. Monarchs west of the divide fly to the coast of California to spend the winter. They cluster together on tree limbs during the winter months in California by the thousands, and in Central Mexico by the millions.”
