LATE red admiral- Where do they go?
I saw a red admiral playing with fire (or should I say ICE) in Minnesota today.
It looked newly hatched. We are a good week past our avg first frost date and it's finally going to freeze this weekend.
It was only 60 degrees today, but there was no wind and it felt warmer. A beautiful bonus day to our 2013 season.
There is still lots of nectar to be had in the garden and there were honey bees stocking up too. I hope the RA got what it needed and flew south like the wind! There'll be no more nectar after this weekend... Tony
