Location: Madison, behind Oakwood Village West
Dane County

Low 80s and sunny. Ground was wet from a.m. rain. After visiting a friend at Oakwood West, I walked around in back on a whim, not expecting to see much. I was pleasantly surprised to see quite a few butterflies, especially the American and painted ladies, which I'd only seen a few times this year.
