Butterflies seen at Coventry Lake

Two different types of butterflies have been dominant this summer at Coventry Lake.  The yellow swallow tail butterfly and the monarch butterfly have both been seen in great numbers.  The swallow tail gets its name by the two small swallows on the rear of the wings.  The monarch butterfly migrates a tremendous distance.  They are the only butterfly that migrates north and south.  Around the first week in August the butterfly will start to migrate south toward Mexico and make its way back here in the spring.  The photos are courtesy of google images.
