Orange Sulphur butterfly (Colias Eurytheme) Perched on a Grass

Post on July 12, 2012 BugsMacro


It’s hard to tell apart an Orange Sulfur from a Clouded Sulphur but i am certain this is the former from the location and markings. Most Sulphurs, especially this species perch low on the ground, and are very skittish; so a cleaned background like this is hard to come by. This Orange Sulphur already found its roosting spot on a grass stalk before the sunset.
