Monarch Butterfly's migration extends from August to November as they seek a warm spot to spend winter at. This butterfly stood on a bush for a few seconds, when I managed to capture this picture. These spectacular animals are commonly seen during November, especially on Day of the Dead (November 2); El Día de Los Muertos. Their bright tones: orange, white, black, and brown, paint the sky while celebrating November 2 at México.
