Yellow-bellied Visitors

Today’s post features another butterfly visitor to our Lake of the Ozarks (Missouri) butterfly garden this past summer, the Cloudless Sulphur. Typically a nice yellow color (as it’s name “sulphur” implies), there seemed to be several that were more white, or pale green, than the standard yellow.

The sulphurs were content on our large zinnia beds, but seemed to favor the wonderful “Blusing Suzy” vines (these are definitely on the list to grow from seed again next year!). Here are a few of my favorite images:
