It is a natural history epic. It is a detective story. Join hundreds of millions of real butterflies on an amazing journey to a remote and secret hideaway, and one scientist's 40-year search to unravel the mystery - where do they go each fall? Experience the Flight of the Butterflies.Written by
I saw this film about 1.5 years ago at the Science Museum of Minnesota. Wonderful film - it felt like you were actually there with the 3D. I have raised Monarch butterflies for 47 consecutive years as of summer 2015, and in the 1980s I sent Dr. Urquhart a letter about my monarch raising and received a kind, encouraging letter back from him in return which I will always cherish and be grateful for.
I just recently discovered on Monarch Watch website for 2015 tag recoveries that one of my flutters raised from egg and released 9/1/15 was discovered in Rosario Hills, Mexico on 2/26/16, which I am just completely thrilled to know. I can only imagine how Dr. Urquhart felt when he found his tagged butterfly-he must have felt as if the heavens opened before him! There are very few things the word "awesome" is used to describe nowadays that are truly awesome, but this and this film are two of them. A must-see for everyone who loves the flutters!
