Red Admirals (Vanessa atalanta) are a colorful butterfly that migrates from the south each Spring. They are widely distributed in the US, Canada, and Europe. Apparently they are returningearlier this Spring. The Kalamazoo Nature Center seemed to be filled with them last week.
I teach economics at Kalamazoo College. My wife is also an economist. We were on sabbatical in Europe for the 2014-15 academic year. (Salamanca, Spain, followed by Oxford, UK.) We were in Uruguay for the 2006-7 academic year.
