Dainty Sulphur Nathalis iole

The diminutive sulphur of Arkansas. Sometimes astoundingly abundant in specific locations. Otherwise tends to build in numbers toward late summer and early fall. A low flying butterfly which likes to bounce along in the grasses. Could only be mistaken for the Little Yellow in most places in the east. Watch out for Barred Yellow in Florida and the southeast.

Creamy colors slashed with that butter yellow mark. And these are very small sulphurs. Very fine butterflies nonetheless. This is the so-called wet season form.

The darker markings of the dry season form. Like a different butterfly.
