One of my favorite Flashback Dallas posts was the one I wrote earlier this year about Carl Anderson, a man who was passionate about studying Monarch butterflies. He shared his love of these butterflies with everyone — from the neighbor kids on Centenary Avenue in University Park to the worldwide readership of Life magazine.

I wrote the original post — which you can read here — when the Monarchs were migrating up from Mexico. Now they are migrating back south. Check out the animated map of the Fall/Winter 2015 migration here.

Keep your eyes peeled for Monarchs! Do it for Carl!
