Yellow Butterfly


A single yellow butterfly caught my eye yesterday afternoon.  I think this one is called a Cloudless Sulphur.  It was busy flying all around this lantana plant hopping from flower to flower.  I wonder if all the rain has made those flowers a little more tasty.

Nice. It seems that we have seen more butterflies than we usually do this year at least over here.

Where the heck do they come up with these names for butterflies? Of all, bugs, animals reptiles etc. I do believe the'flies' have the most unique names. Here I'll name a 'new' one.
"Blue Cement Trees".
There I'll get a patent for it too.

All the plants must feel a little refreshed by the rain as long as they weren't beaten up by it. ;-)

All the plants are happy to get the rain so I think the butterflies would be too. That is a good name for this one because the color is kind of sulfur like.

It's lovely. And you caught it on the perfect flower to offset it. Gorgeous!

That butterfly looks green to me. (Maybe that's why my wife is always yelling at me "STOP! That's a red light!)
