yes, that is what kind of butterfly it is. they are not territorial at all. they will fly from field to field finding food and host plants, and of course a mate.MsReeReee said:So is that what type of Butterfly it is...........i havent seen it since that day...........
it is actually a little more complicated than that. all the black ones are females, but females can also come in the standard yellow also. so it is a little misleading when you see so many yellows and a few blacks that there are not enough females to go around. sorry , i am not a genetesis(sp?) so i can not tell you why the colour morphs.Pamsreef said:Thanks for the link Shirley.
I didn't know that the black ones were female. I actually have seen black and yellow ones alot lately fluttering around together.
Maybe they are "flirting". Very neat to watch.
Great Picture MsReeRee!
