This one is just a shorty. I wanted to acknowledge this... great job to Taiwan in their on-going efforts to help preserve the Purple Milkweed Butterflies during their migration across the country. It seems part of their path is across a highway and in previous years hundreds die at the windshield of speeding cars. They have constructed a large netting system across this migration path. The net does not trap the butterflies but forces them to go up and over it, above the height of the traffic.
To many a butterfly is just another *bug*
Good for them and their efforts!
