Largest Butterfly Migration Ever Seen in Israel

Millions of beautiful butterflies are moving through Israel. The annual migration is always a special sight to behold, and this year, it’s the biggest on record

The butterflies are headed to Europe for breeding (they stop in Israel for food). This particular species is called “Painted Lady” and they do look lovely. Can you imagine being surrounded by a bunch at once? It must be beyond incredible.

I love butterflies. I don’t see them often, so it’s always a sweet surprise when I do. A million at once, however, would freak me out!
