Over-wintering Monarch butterfly, Central Coast of California.

If you happen to be climbing on the Central Coast in December or January, be sure to stop by Ellwood Main, the seas-side bluffs near UC Santa Barbara. Ellwood is home to the largest wintering population of butterflies in the state of California (some years boasting more than 1 million of the beautiful creatures).
