The Red Admirals are out in central Iowa! I saw the first one on April 17, but then it got cold for the next week and I didn't see any more. But then we had a beautiful sunny day in Story County on Sunday, the 26th, and a group of us saw three flying around at East Peterson Park in the early afternoon. Then yesterday on the 27th, I spotted three more while surveying the Iowa State University campus on another bright, sunny afternoon after 5 p.m. So who else has been seeing them in Iowa or elsewhere around the Midwest? Please keep us posted!
