Location: Whitnall Park - trails by sledding hill
Milwaukee County

When I went over to investigate the milkweed, I was surprised and impressed to find at an orb weaver at least 2" in size. The Giant Swallowtail was a real challenge to capture with photo. He or she moved quickly from flower to flower. I learned this haven for so many insects is going to become a rope climbing course.
