Not the best photo, but good enough to ID. It was feeding on an opening Texas rock rose bloom beneath a tangle of branches from a dead Ashe juniper that made it difficult to photograph. Had to use full 42x telephoto zoom.

Description

Este día se presentó un frente frío, el cual no permitió que las mariposas continuaran con su jornada, así que al llegar al Santuario comenzamos a buscar algunas monarca para determinar si habían perchado.
Hasta las 9:00 AM de ese día las mariposas no volaron, se mantuvieron en su racimo, perchando, aunque fue una cantidad menor a la del día anterior (16 de Noviembre de 2014).
Los tordos y una ave de pecho amarillo comenzaron a atacar a las monarca mientras seguían perchando, ocasionando que algunas de ellas cayeran al suelo y muchas otras fueron consumidas por dichas aves.

Description

Las mariposas Monarca percharon en un árbol del género Ficus, a un costado del Santuario de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe.
Al otro costado Percharon, en una cantidad menor, sobre un árbo del género Cupressus algunas mariposas también Monarca.
Al sentir los rayos del sol volaron para posarse sobre una Casuarina, y una vez se sintieron cómodas emprendieron el vuelo para seguir con su travesía.
