Butterfly sighting

Location: Capital Springs Dog Park, SE side of Madison
Dane County

Great place for butterfly surveys: I nearly always see Monarchs here during their flight season. Unfortunately, I only had my cell phone with me today, and my photos were horrible. The butterflies were busy flitting away. Perfect conditions: high 70s, very light wind, plenty of nectar flowers. Monarchs were mainly flying SW, presumably migrating. I'm sure there were many more butterflies; I was walking my dog and interacting with other dogs and dog owners.
