Orange-Barred Sulphur Butterfly (Phoebis Philea)

in hive-185836 •  last month 

Well then! I am finally coming up with some photos of the orange-barred butterfly that I found around the bush. It was still morning when I saw it making slowly move to the wild flower. To be honest, since I deal with the insect, it was my first time finding this butterfly, that according to me, it is one of beautiful butterflies that I ever found, especially the color that attracted so badly to capture this winged insect. It is called orange-barred sulphur Phoebis philea, the orange-barred sulphurs are often found in large dense groups of mixed species, including the statira sulphur (Aphrissa statira), apricot sulphur (Phoebis argante), and the straight-line sulphur (Rhabdodryas trite). The species eats nectar from red-colored plants.
