attack of the butterflies

What is the deal with all the friggin' butterflies?!? Over the last week or so the air around Southern California (or, at least the L.A. area) has been filled with the little buggers. I don't remember ever seeing such butterflies en masse.

It's beautiful, really, but the bum part is that, because they're so prevalent, the little bugs are throwing themselves at car windshields. Now, that's not pretty.

Think it's because of all the wet weather we've been having? Do their little cocoons survive better in a rainy season?
