I had a good look at a male Statira Sulphur today. I thought it was a cloudless at first but it landed in an oak for a brief period. I quickly got a phone out to take a picture and it took off. Lots of butterflies today there was most likely a dingy purplewing in flight as well but it didn’t land for a confirmation. There were good winds and warm temps which is maybe how these guys turned up so far north and out of range.
