Beautiful butterfly seen in wildflowers today. Is it another Dainty Sulphur Butterfly? The in-flight photo is blurry, sorry. Thank you for your help.
Warm weather, 79 degrees, cloudy and humid, light scattered showers.
Your identification of the Dainty Sulphur, Nathalis iole, is correct. Even though the open winged photo is blurry, it still shows the markings on this lovely little butterfly. Spread wing photos of this species are not easily taken, and even BugGuide only has a few. We are very grateful to be able to post your two views of a Dainty Sulphur.
