Butterfly sighting

Location: Allen Centennial Gardens, UW-Madison
Dane County

After my successful butterfly outing in front of Bascom Hall, I headed over to Allen Centennial Gardens, expecting lots of butterflies since there are certainly lots of flowers there. However, there weren't many. The most interesting was a silver-spotted skipper who was sitting on a leaf with its wings open. Also nice to see several hummingbirds.
