Little Yellow

Little Yellow (a.k.a. Little Sulfur; Pyrisitia lisa or Eurema lisa) - The Orange Trail, The Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge Wilderness Area, New Jersey

 

View On Black or view in O-Size to see the detail in the borders of the trailing edge on the top wing.

 

At first I thought this was an Orange Sulfur, but then thought, "Wait a minute, that's way too small". It flew down the trail in front of me for several minutes before tiring and resting in the grass along the trail on a low perch. I set up my tripod and sat there for 10 or 15 minutes making captures when lulls in the breeze allowed for the slow shutter speeds needed for detailed captures.
