Sulphur on Buddleia
Common Sulphur aka Clouded Sulphur
Colias philodice 1 1/8--2"


The increase in active agriculture in our area has enhanced the Sulphur population. Other varieties may show up here soon. The bright yellow of this variety is as seen in this image!

Thank you to PamelaJean for help with identifying the grasshopper nymph and her User award for the image!

Beautiful, Jenn. I look forward to the promised additional shots. The landscape orientation is a nice change of pace.

Your buddleia is much more colourful than mine! The purple against that inky green is so beautiful, the 'fly is a bonus.
Re the commenting on my upload yesterday - it's not so much political, more a national joke about conspiracy theories I think. British humour can be quite strange...

A stunning close up of a butterfly which looks rather like our clouded yellow. The composition is first class once again
