Submitted by: rchensley
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Observed a large yellow butterfly with orange on trailing edge of hind wings; flew fast and was harassed by lots of other smaller sulphurs. Never stopped for more than a second or two on anything except a few times on esperanza. I got two not great photos but good enough to confirm id.
