Roosting monarchs

Good numbers of monarchs were around all day, and as temperatures cooled in the late afternoon, monarchs started to cluster together in overnight roosts.  We hadn't found any significant clustering of monarchs this season until today.  Most were near the 3-way junction of Harvard, Lake, and Ocean in Cape May Point.  We'll share a few pictures of the roosting monarchs here.  We're hoping for another great day for monarchs in Cape May Point tomorrow.
