[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.
