What's up with the butterflies?

If you live in the Inland Empire, chances are you’ve seen many of these butterflies flying past you! Painted Ladies (Vanessa cardui) are migrating north from the deserts of Mexico. It’s an event that happens every year, however due to heavy rainfall this winter the desert plants the butterflies breed on are plentiful, and more flowers means more butterflies! It’s a pleasant sight to see and we wish them safe travels!
