Butterfly sighting

Joan Braune and Tod Highsmith

Location: our backyard and east side madison neighborhood
Dane County

What a treat to see 6 adult Pipevine Swallowtails! One female laid 2 eggs as we watched and we found 2 other clusters of eggs with 28-29 eggs each. The male Cobra Clubtail dragonfly was perched on our front porch steps! A female was in our backyard a few days ago.
