In our yard today I saw two butterflies, my first December individuals:

Cloudless Sulphur 2

It was 66 F and sunny weather. Today I saw one sulphur visiting the last few
pineapple sage flowers to nectar. I followed it for a while as it flew up to
the front of the house where it started fluttering at the base of a Camellia
bush for several minutes. Sitting down and watching what was happening I
discovered a second Cloudless Sulphur hanging under a leaf in the bush. The
Camellia was in the sun when I left. Later in the afternoon I checked again
and found one of the butterflies still in place.
This morning, December 2, I checked again but could not find any resting
butterfly.
