Colias croceus

Clouded Yellow - The Clouded Yellow can be found anywhere in the British Isles and Ireland although they are immigrants from Europe and Africa. A few have overwintered in the south of England put easily perish due to low temperatures. Wild clover is one of it's main food sources. I photographed these in the Algarve at Praia Da Rocha Portugal.
