Lots of crazy things going in the monarch sanctuary. This pic was taken on a day when we had some strong winds and these monarchs were all attached to the lace lichen hanging in the cypress they were clustering in. When it fell out of the tree, these guys fell as well and because it was too cold to fly, they were stuck on the ground. Over time, we gradually saw them warm up enough to fly away. Being on the ground is not a good thing for these guys as they are very vulnerable.
