[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is another sulphur from the central Oregon area. With a common name of Orange Sulphur, this Colias eurytheme looks similar to the Clouded Sulphur previous posted.

However, note the additional dark spots on the fore wing and the doubled white spot on the rear wing. This bug also has a more pronounced pink area near the base of the rear wing.

This photo was taken an hour or so before the Clouded Sulphur shot in the same area along the Dry Canyon Trail in Redmond, Oregon.

A good picture of this Butterfly. It has unusal markings on him. Good composition and focus. The colours make it stand out well from the background. well done.

Hello Lauren,
That's a nice shot of this wonderful butterfly. Amusing the shadows of the plant on its wings. Wonderful subtle colours.
best regards
