Here are some photos of one of the yellow butterflies that were flying near our yard yesterday. Is it an Orange Sulfur? I freely admit that the subtle differences in species are challenging! Sorry the photo of the flight is so blurry. Love your website. Thank you for any information.

Orange Sulphur

Hi Ellen,
In our opinion, this is an Orange Sulphur or Alfalfa Sulphur,
Colias eurytheme, and the coloration is especially evident in the open winged photograph.  You can see BugGuidefor additional photos.
