Orange Sulphur (revisited)|
|Sept. 21, 2014|
Although I've an earlier page on the orange sulphur (Colias eurytheme), today's photos are better and more varied.
The orange sulphur is a common butterfly, particularly in late summer and fall; nevertheless, it's certainly a beauty.
First, the traditional position, inasmuch as the orange sulphur perches with its wings upright.
|I caught the wing-open view as the orange sulphur was coming in for a landing on the asters.|
|Next, there is the direct stare.|
|This isn't one of my sharper images, but I truly enjoy the view of the orange sulphur ascending from an aster.|
I would title the last photo in this sequence as, "The Lightness of Being."
Photo note: I used the Pentax K20D, with the SMC-A* 200mm macro lens, for the photos, taken on September 15, 2014, on Jo Hays Vista.
