Red Admirals still represent one of the largest groups of butterflies we are 
seeing here in the Patapsco River watershed in Baltimore County.  But they 
have not started moving again like they were doing earlier last month...for 
the moment anyway.  They seem to have settled into the main function of 
nectaring and egg-laying.  Others in good numbers:  Papilio glaucus, 
Celastrina ladon neglecta, Colias eurytheme, and Vanessa virginiensis.
