Cloudless Sulphur on Yellow Cactus Flower

These yellow cactus flowers in full bloom had a few Cloudless Sulphur Butterflies flitting around them.

And they do flit, with speed.

The overgrown vegetation around the cactus kept me from getting a better angle. The possibility of snakes was top of my mind.

The flowers on their own were outstanding.

Holly With Yellow Flowers

This yellow flower stalk caught my eye, as did the roving dangly legged insect.

He wasn’t too impressed and moved on.

There wasn’t much to the plant, the leaves you see here were all there were, about three or four feet (1 Meter) off the ground.

I had not noticed these flowers before and don’t know if they are typical winter bloomers or if the relatively mild winter we are in has brought them out early.

December Yellow

This burst of yellow called out when I passed down a narrow path on a recent afternoon at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens.  The plant was large, these blooms were slightly above my eye level.

Regrettably I didn’t even look for a plant tag but did get one isolated flower, looking something like a ballerina.

Cloudless Sulphur Butterfly

Cloudless Sulphur Butterfly was one of at least five butterfly species I saw on November 13  at Donnelley Wildlife Management Area.

There were actually dozens of them along the road, zipping in and out of the Morning Glories.

Zoom in on this last image and you’ll see some sort of a multi-segmented insect between the two Morning Glory blooms that I did not see at the time.
