dsc_3004

The clouded sulfur butterfly likes alfalfa (shown here) and clover.  They are common and widespread, easy to spot for their sunny colored wings.  There are many forms in the sulfur family – the colors range from orange to white with various spot patterns, some with no black margins: cloudless sulfur is all yellow, cabbage white is all white with black corners, and orange sulfur is orange with black margins…etc.
