Location: Lacy Heights, Fitchburg
The Red Admirals are starting their second brood. A nettle patch that yielded dozens of them several weeks ago was being visited today by ovipositing females. Sadly, one of their nemesis parasites - Musca domesticus - was perched on the same plant that held these eggs.
