[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The clouded yellow (Colias croceus) is a butterfly of the Pieridae family.

Flies usually in two to three generations from april to november.
The clouded yellow is very agile and fast flyer and it is almost impossible to see it with open wings only in the moment when it is mating !
Spends the winter as young caterpillar !

I photographed it after several unsuccessful attempts because it really proved to be a quick and restless butterfly. This one liked to pose :)
