|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
Greenish yellow with two silver-white spots. Always rests with wings closed. Upperwings are deep orange-yellow with broad dark wing margins.
The Clouded Yellow is one of the truly migratory European butterflies and a regular visitor to Britain and Ireland. Although some of these golden-yellow butterflies are seen every year, the species is famous for occasional mass immigrations and subsequent breeding, which are fondly and long remembered as ''Clouded Yellow Years''. A small proportion of females are pale yellow (form helice), which can be confused with the rarer Pale and Berger's Clouded Yellows.
