Pink-edged Sulpher


Pink-edged Sulpher
(Colias interior)


With a meadow full of blueberries,
it's chief larval food,
 it's no surprise to see this
northern butterfly fluttering about.

What a beautiful little thing! Oh, but it would be difficult to watch their young'uns chomping on the blueberry leaves.

Pink edging not just on the wings, but the antennae and parts of the head. Very cool all the detail you can see - great photo!
