Location: west side of Madison, various locations
Dane County

A little urban butterflying today (all from my car). Saw 7 of the Cabbage Whites while waiting in the drive-through lane at Summit Credit Union. Other Cabbage Whites in many locations. The Silver-spotted Skippers were at the gardens at Oakwood Village West. Most were sampling the tasty zinnias and marigolds. One decided he preferred a metal post instead. (He stayed there for quite awhile before venturing out to sample the flowers.)
