Sulphur butterfly

Sulphur, originally uploaded by Ontario Wanderer.

I tried numerous times last year to get a photo of one of these Sulphur butterflies to no avail. I had better luck today. I did not get the photo I wanted and never got it in an open position so I cannot say for sure which Sulphur it is but it is either Clouded Sulphur (Colias philodice) or Orange Sulphur (Colias eurytheme) or, wouldn't you know it, a hybrid. Without the open wings, and more experience, I cannot tell.
