GALLERY: Monarch Butterfly migration arrives in the Concho Valley


You have probably ran into a few beautiful, winged insect friends around town lately, fluttering through the San Angelo sky and resting in trees and bushes.

We are, of course, talking about the annual migration of the Monarch Butterfly. There have been several reported sightings of these guys around town filling trees and favorite resting spots.

The Monarch Butterflies are flying south to Mexico for the winter. The butterflies can not survive the cold winters that we typically see here in the United States.

San Angelo is just one stop on their long journey to warmer weather. With our next cold front on the way and temperatures expected to get down into the 40s, these guys will be on their way soon.

If you see any of the butterflies be sure to take a photo or video, and we would love it if you shared it with us too.

Above is a collection of the photos and videos that we have received from viewers across the area.
