Location: Olbrich Botanical Gardens, Madison
I had to be in Madison today, so I made a trip to Olbrich. I was thrilled to find 2 Pipevine Swallowtails in the shady woodland wildflower garden. They circled around each other furiously on occasion and then alighted on some poppy leaves in the sun. One was very worn and lacking one of its tails, the other had both tails and was a bit brighter. They were very faithful to this spot in the garden and I observed them for about 50 minutes.
