Last Clouded Sulphur Sighting

This is perhaps my last Clouded Sulphur sighting of the year. This morning I took a walk around our flower gardens. At the back of our side lawn I saw this Clouded Sulphur clinging to the tall grasses at its edge. At first the butterfly was difficult to see as it blended in so well with the grasses . I pulled some of the grass in front of it to get a better focus and then having put my camera on macro placed the lens almost on top of it. I assumed it was dead as it had exhibited no movement at all. I picked the blade of grass it was on and thought I would place it on our patio table so I could study it leisurely for seldom do I get such an opportunity; but as I transferred the blade of grass to my other hand the butterfly flew away.

You have some great shots of butterflies here. I just realized that I was at your site before.

I am eagerly awaiting the return of spring; and butterflys! A butterfly sighting has an amazing ability to really give that extra specialness to your day! I miss them.
