Mating Monarchs

Two orange and black butterflies together over green grass

Location: Howe Neighborhood

I was out shooting photos of my flowers in my backyard on Sunday. I looked down at the ground and here were these two mating monarchs. My sister is in a Facebook group on monarchs and here is what they said:

The female will go into diapause and keep her eggs all winter until she flies back North.

Simply amazing!
