Location: McKee Road/Dorchester Way. Just down hill from Wingra Quarry
Dane County

Saw a beautfiul male Black Swallowtail clinging to a leaf on the ground and initially thought it was not alive. Upon picking it up realized it was still hanging on. Wings very beaten up. Set him up in a little habitat with nectar and fruit but after 8hrs of sunshine and a heat lamp it ended it's life cycle.
