November Orange Sulphurs

Posted on Nov 11, 2014

This photo is from the summer in the gardens of the Roger Tory Peterson Institute of Natural History in Jamestown, New York, but in the past week I have seen several more of these Orange Sulphurs (Colias eurytheme) thanks to the balmy conditions. Have you seen any of them? Or spotted other butterfly species? The weather has been unseasonably warm, especially in regard to high temperatures, and was once again today. I am afraid to say those of you who have enjoyed it will be disappointed soon as temperatures will crash back to normal and below-normal for mid-November shortly.
