Butterfly sighting

Location: Our yard in Sauk City
Sauk County

After three days of butterflying we thought we'd take a break. But today, in the morning, a dark swallowtail came into the yard and headed for our Dutchman's Pipe plant (Aristolachia tomentosa) and started laying eggs! It was a female Pipevine Swallowtail! If they manage to find our one plant there must be many coming into the state. So anyone with Aristolachia should keep an eye on it!
