Little Yellow
Pyrisitia lisa
July 13, 2016

  "Little yellow:" (Pyrisitia lisa) is the charming name of a somewhat small yellow (or sulphur) butterfly, about two-thirds the size of a cabbage white.

  I noticed the little yellow in a field, and unlike most other sulphurs, it didn't mind my working closer for photographs (and so I ended up with a goodly selection to choose from).

  The little yellow is a southern butterfly that is working its way northward as the climate becomes warmer and warmer. Thus far it is still an uncommon butterfly in central Pennsylvania, but give it time . . .

Photo note: I used the Pentax K3, with the SMC-A* 200mm macro lens, on July 10, 2016.
