Butterfly sighting

Location: Madison, west side, private flower garden
Dane County

What fun to see butterflies and get some photos this late in the season. The preferred nectar sources were zinnias and marigolds (except for one cabbage white who seemed to enjoy a garden hose). The monarch didn't pose for a photo. The Peck's skipper sat nicely on a marigold, but too far away and with an obstructed view--I got a good look but no good photos.
