Yard butterflies. A cool morning started off great when I spotted an eclosing male Orange-barred Sulphur. As the day warmed from noon to 2 pm other butterflies flew the yard. If you ever have the opportunity to photograph an Orange-barred Sulphur (they rarely perch), don’t forget to get the backlit shot as this is one butterfly that shows well with backlighting.
