Cape Cod Fall Butterflies

The great southward migration of the monarch butterfly along the dunes in September and October is the butterfly event of the year on Cape Cod.

Butterfly enthusiasts also hunt for the “bog copper” that abounds on the cranberry bogs of the Cape.

Most striking are the yellow and black tiger swallowtail; the maroon buff, and blue mourning cloak, and the red, black and brown rear admiral. Also attractive are the orange-brown great spangled fritillary and the pearl crescent. Road side puddles are good places to look for butterflies.
