Butterfly sighting

Location: Olbrich Gardens, Madison
Dane County

Spent about an hour here during the noon heat. Fiery Skippers everywhere and lots of dragonfly egg-laying going on in the sunken gardens. Their Blooming Butterflies event is going on this week and next and I was getting lots of "What are you looking at?" questions from staff and visitors who saw me with binos and who are more keyed in to butterflies than usual.
