Butterfly sighting

Sylvia Edlebeck, Joan Vennie

Location: Olbrich Gardens, Madison
Dane County

Monarchs everywhere, which was great to see. It was interesting to see a silver-spotted skipper with its wings open. It stayed in that position for quite awhile. Also interesting was the red-spotted purple high up in a tree with the sun shining through its wings. A great day to be out.
