Butterflies that didn't survive the harsh weather (La Voz de Michoacán/Enrique Castro)

The monarch butterflies that winter in the mountains west of Mexico City survived the severe cold snap that hit the area last week, authorities said.

Mexico’s environmental protection agency released photos of patches of frost, snow and ice in parts of the butterfly reserve. Activists had expressed concern about the unusual cold snap because driving rain and bitter cold in 2001 killed millions of monarchs at the reserve.

But the agency also released photos showing clumps of butterflies still hanging from trees. They tend to drop off trees when they’re frozen.
