Sulphurs. Cloudless Sulphur Butterfly. Gainesville, Florida. 2013.
I am seeing more Cloudless Sulphurs in the yard every day. Yesterday there were 3-4 feeding or flying over at any given time as they migrate south for the winter. According to the UF Entomology Dept. website, Cloudless Sulphurs are migrating at the same time as Monarchs, but are easier to see in our area because the Monarchs fly higher and are heading to Mexico. The Sulphurs are heading south along the east coast, with the bulk of them spending the winter somewhere south of Gainesville and north of Lake Okeechobee where the temperatures will be warm enough.
