Butterfly sighting

Location: Olbrich Botanical Gardens
Dane County

Windy, so some of the photos are blurry. Great day for butterfly sightings, though, because the winds were from the southwest, keeping the migrators near the ground nectaring. I've never seen so many Painted Ladies in one place at the same time.
