[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Not a great photo but it was really a WOW moment when we saw these monarchs arriving ready to cross Lake Ontario. There were hundreds of them. The wind off the lake had been really strong all week and we had watch a few make attempt at crossing and then coming back to land. The next day the wind dropped and the monarchs were all gone. Fantastic moment.

Hello Julia,
really a special moment that you have done well to document and I thank you for sharing it. No matter the quality of the picture, (which is also a good photo) but the moment captured is truly amazing!

Hi Julia
Yes, I agree, this is a WOW moment. It must have been so exciting to see so many Monarch in one location. It's great to see and I wish them all a safe journey.
