The jpg file name was my bad...the clouded yellow is a european variant; both the yellow and sulphur are in the sub-family Coliadinae.

The purple sage bush attracted a myriad of pollinators.

I was going to say that your Sulphur looked a little different than my Clouded Sulphur. Hope to get some decent images this summer, now that I've solved the back focus issue.

Just did another wildlife column that involved clouded sulphurs; sometimes these and the orange sulphur are very similar to the orange sulphur. Sometimes the females of the 2 species are so alike that it is difficult or impossible to tell them apart in the field.
