Description/Notes: 
Fontenelle Forest, Bellevue, Nebraska. After reading how the red admirals have been moving further North I decided to walk the history trail again and see if the number of red admirals had decreased. On Monday I had seen 29 and Saturday saw 6. It should have been a great day for butterflying with temperatures around 70 and winds 6 mph. Survey from 1:30 to 2:30 pm CDT.
