The Common Sulphur - can be found in meadows, clover patches, and pastures. It is found March thru December, allowing for local weather conditions. It feeds on clover, alfalfa and many of the legume crops. Colors vary between the Male and Female and is greenish/yellow in spring and fall. These butterflies are constantly on the move, and don't stay in one place long. A true albino version which is pink and white exists.

Hello Cecilia,
This is very beautiful! Both butterfly and clover are so nicely in focus and details very sharp. I like their colours against the soft background. Very well composed too.
