Butterfly sighting

Location: Olbrich Gardens
Dane County

The Pipevine Swallowtail chrysalis is fresh from this morning. The caterpillar selected an oleander which will soon be going into a winter home where the temperature will be kept at 65 degrees F. I've let Olbrich people know to keep an eye out for an emerging butterfly.
