    Dear Journey North,

    We think that the Largo, FL point is the incorrect one on your map. We
    don't think that the butterflies would fly from Mexico across the Gulf of
    Mexico to Florida. We also think that the date of the sighting is too
    early in comparison to the other Florida sighting which occurred after
    March 15th. We also don't think the monarchs would fly that far south in
    Florida when they are supposed to be flying north. We think the monarchs
    are moving in a north-east direction and Largo, FL is not in that
