These butterflies are pale yellow/green. They LOVE this plant. There are often 5 or more on the plant at once. Any idea "who" they are?
CLOSED: Another butterfly Id needed
It's a Sulphur butterfly for sure. Here's a link to SC butterflies that will help you ID it http://www.npwrc.usgs.gov/resource/distr/lepid/bflyusa/sc/toc.htm#whitesands
Aren't they gorgeous? ..they are one of my favorites...
there seem to be an abundance of them right now, too...
Thanks Floridian, for the info and the link. I'm thinking the Cloudless Sulphur is the best fit.
Yes, seedpicker, they are lovely. There is quite a flurry of them around this particular plant all day, and the yellow color really stands out - as if the area has been punctuated with highlighter markings that dance.
