This butterfly that travels across the North American continent like a migratory bird !
Tree branches break.
Amazing hordes !
Flock to the trees.
Stores solar energy.
And a monarch butterfly flying in the sky !
A mysterious entomologist seeks the unique sound of millions of butterflies.
I visited a sanctuary in Mexico.
And recorded the finest sound on the ground.

【The SOUND of Millions of Monarch Butterflies!】
『 How many butterflies does it take to make a noise in the woods? A few million. Watch (and listen!) as these monarchs put on a show at their overwintering site in Mexico. Follow on Instagram @phil_torres for more. This was filmed while leading a trip to visit the monarch migration with Atlas Obscura 』

However, despite these habits, the number of monarchs in the United States has been declining in recent years.
The cause is cited as the deforestation of trees in forest areas in wintering areas.
For this reason, a southern monarch reserve is set up in Mexico, south of them, where many butterflies breed.

In this video, Phil Torres, an entomologist and extreme conservationist, visited a sanctuary in Sierra Cinquala, approximately 3,200 meters above sea level, southwest of Mexico City.
Each spring, butterflies, which are likely to be endangered, begin moving from the United States to Mexico. In autumn, we arrive here and winter.
However, many carcasses of butterflies that couldn’t overwinter after traveling over 2,400 km have fallen.
Nothing left !
After a long journey, they completely cover the trees of the Pinaceae family and move their wings. Trees wrapped in monarch monkeys can be seen as plants of different dimensions when viewed from a distance.
Butterflies orchestra !
The earth plays.
God’s song !
This sound is played not by the early morning,
but by the monarch butterfly activated by the sunlight.
In the daytime, butterflies fly around this time, sucking honey, and mating violently and passionately.
When this video was filmed, there were approximately 140 million butterflies living near the sanctuary.
