Migrating Monarchs

I took a trip down Dune Rd. this evening in hopes of finding migrating raptors (which I saw last evening in the form a Merlin.  I was unsuccessful with birds, but just before I was about to head over the Ponquogue bridge I spotted hundreds of Monarch Butterflies.  Across the street there were a handful that were in the fading light so I went after them first.  I followed that up by heading across the street and popping the flash and switching to my 18-200mm from my 300mm lens for a broad view of these butterflies.  I'd been noticing a lot of them around Dune Rd. but didn't realize they "roosted" like this except down in Mexico.
