Orange Sulphur (Colias eurytheme)

Posted on Aug 6, 2014

When we have had dry conditions here in Western New York during the first days of August I have seen a lot more butterfly activity with both common and scarcer species emerging and becoming more abundant. It’s always a terrific month to find butterflies on the wing while some of our breeding birds are already beginning to migrate to the south. Here’s an Orange Sulphur (Colias eurytheme) from the gardens at RTPI.
