Little Yellow (Eurema lisa)

This small sulfur is typically seen in grassy areas. It tends to be skittish, perhaps because it is not a strong flyer. Usually, it flies circuitously before hiding on a blade of grass or other protected perch. It seems to feed primarily on flowering groundcover. Identifying characteristics include a pink spot on the underside of the hindwing, small black dots where each vein reaches the outer edge of the wing and a thin pink and white border around the edge of the wings.

This butterfly seems quite common, but is difficult to photograph. It will typically fly away quickly when approached.
