We are seeing more of these Clouded Sulpher butterflies now and they seem to like the Asters that are the last of the flowers to bloom here before cold weather sets in.

Thank you JanElle, for identifying these butterflies with the right name...I couldn't decide if they
were the butterflies that are called Whites or the Clouded Sulphur as they look similar...

    It is a beautiful butterfly and goes nicely with the purple Aster bloom. Great that JanElle could help you to identify it.
