Specimen NC 259 | Clouded Yellow Butterfly

[colias croceus]

These Butterflies have a wingspan of 1.8–2.1 in. This strong-flying butterfly always settles with its wings closed and so the dark borders on the uppersides of the wings are only visible when in flight.

SPECIAL THANKS

to the Museum of York County

for their generous permission to paint right there in their Naturalist Center—so I could experience these beautiful creations up close and personal.
