October 2, 2003 - Thousands of monarchs were streaming through
Dallas after a cool front came through the night before.  This has
been one of the largest migrations I've seen here in years.  At the
Texas Discovery Gardens in Fair Park, where we are doing a monarch 
tagging demonstration everyday during the State Fair of Texas (to 
coincide with our tropical live butterfly exhibit) the gardens were
inundated with monarchs.  Hundreds covered the Mexican Sage, pentas
and verbena, stopping fair-goers in their tracks.  It was an impossible 
site for even people who have had no interest in butterflies to ignore.
