Magnificent migration, Monarchs!

The number of monarchs making the 3,400-mile journey started to increase in 2014 from a serious drop in levels over the previous decade and last winter's population had increased further still. This December, the butterflies covered 10 acres, compared to 2.8 acres in 2014 and a record low of 1.66 acres in 2013.

I cannot even IMAGINE ten acres of butterflies. 

That sounds like a plague.
