Were you curious why there's so many butterflies swarming Southern California? It's thanks to the California Super Bloom Causing Millions of Migrating Painted Lady Butterflies to Fill the Sky
The skies of Southern California have become filled with millions of painted lady butterflies in the biggest migration event since 2005, thanks to recent heavy rain.
Experts say the state’s unusually wet winter and cooler than normal February have enabled plants to flourish in a rare super bloom event, which in turn has provided plentiful food for butterflies.
"The more plants, the more butterflies," Art Shapiro, a professor at the University of California, Davis's Department of Evolution and Ecology, College of Biological Sciences, told the Los Angeles Times. "So any year you have a real big bloom in the desert is potentially a big year for painted ladies."
As for me, I love seeing all the colorful flowers in full bloom and the more butterflies the better! It's also the perfect time to Shop our Spring Fashion now. Click here to see What's New!
