|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|For a dry climate, my area of central Oregon has a nice variety of sulphurs. This Clouded Sulphur, or Colias philodice, can be told from other sulphurs by the dark areas around the central yellow core of the fore wing. |
This fact was pointed out to me when I misidentified the insect on my Flickr photostream ( http://www.flickr.com/photos/ashrunner/ ) and it was pointed out by a more knowledgeable person. It also has a single white spot on the rear wing, rather than a doubled spot like most sulphurs in this area have.
The bug was found on a sage plant along the the Dry Canyon Trail in Redmond, Oregon.
