Monarch butterflies line a branch of a bush in the Pedro Herrada butterfly sanctuary on a mountain in the Mexican state of Michoacan February 1, 2011. Monarch butterfly colonies in Mexico more than doubled in size this winter after bad storms devastated their numbers a year ago, conservationists said on February 14, 2011 although the migrating insect remains under threat. Millions of butterflies make a 2,000-mile journey (3,200 km) each year from Canada to winter in central Mexico's warmer weather but the size of that migration can vary wildly.

Lantern Festival

People release sky lanterns to celebrate the traditional Chinese Lantern Festival in Pingxi, Taipei County. Believers gathered to release sky lanterns as a form of prayer for good luck and blessings. The tradition of releasing lanterns began during the Ching Dynasty when bands of outlaws frequently raided villages, forcing local residents to seek refuge in the mountains. The lanterns were signals used by the village watchmen to inform the refugees that their houses were safe again. The Lantern Festival or Yuan Xiao Jie is a Chinese festival celebrated on the fifteenth day of the first month in the lunar year in the Chinese calendar. REUTERS
