Butterfly sighting

Location: Mazomanie, rural roads
Dane County

Beautiful day. Low 70s and sunny. Highlights of the day: the Hackberry Emperor - only the second I've seen in my life (good looks, but no good photos) ; and the female Eastern Tiger Swallowtail. The Giant Swallowtails are always fun to watch too.
