Dainty Sulphur

(Nathalis iole)

We found this beautiful Dainty Sulphur at Pedernales Nature Park in Johnson City. They are common in the south where they can be found most of the year fluttering along close to the ground.

Note the black spots and orange flush on the forewing near the base. It's larval foodplant is Dogweed, marigold, and other asters.
