Keeping Dry

I nearly grabbed a handful of Cloudless sulphur, while pitching dead leaves off my Datura/Angel's Trumpet. Good thing I looked and looked again. Talk about cryptic!

This is the only time I have seen a Cloudless sulphur sit still.

I always wondered what those little guys were called. Now I know. Thanks for posting the neat picture.

Re comment from 349540 - not to be picky, but cloudless sulphur is correct. See page 75, Kaufman field guide to butterflies of North America

They live by us and love the red Hibiscus flower type vines that are also beloved of the hummingbirds.

Factbites.com will show that Cloudless sulphurs range is throughout SoCal. Clouded ones are North Carolina, Ohio. Even Alaska.

I like how fast these guys fly. Like a "hit and run" kind of flash of bright yellow. Always makes me smile. Nice shot.
