Location: Olbrich Park bleachers next to Garden
Dane County

13:52 - 14:26. Dutchman's pipe vines growing on cedar (not Juniperus) trees are prevalent in the area. There were 2 male Pipevine Swallowtails patrolling the area, which circled around each other and sometimes the cabbage whites.The swallowtails' front wings looked like black velvet to me. Silver spotted Skipper male trying insistently to mate with a larger female.American Lady was warn but displaying the dorsal surface of its wings.
