These shots are taken at Pismo Beach, it's a nice small town and they host the migration of the Monarch butterflies. Every year this butterflies come to the Monarch Butterflies Grove at Pismo Beach in search of warmth (between late October and early March).
Because of the bad weather we couldn't see a lot of them flying :(
You can see how foggy and grey the sky was when we went to the Grove.

But, you never know what will happen within an hour, on our way back, the weather changed again and the sun shined again! It's quite amazing to see how different the same place looks like when the sun goes out.
I must tell that I like much more the mood in the first photo, it makes me wonder so many things...
