I found a yellow December butterfly at the garden shop yesterday. He is not a mellow-yellow butterfly, but a clouded sulfur. (Info from Wikipedia shared below). Anyway, there is an old song from the sixties by Donovan named: Mellow Yellow. I find myself singing it in my head while in crowded stores shopping! So, in honor of the December Yellow Butterfly, the Yellow Snapdragon, the Yellow Pansy, Donovan and staying mellow during the big rush to the end of the year, tonight is a Mellow Yellow Photo Blog for You. (You can sing the song while you view the pics!) Enjoy!

The Cloudless Sulphur or Cloudless Giant Sulphur (Phoebis sennae) is a midsizedbutterfly in the family Pieridae found in the New World. There are several similar species such as the Yellow Angled-sulphur (Anteos maerula), which has angled wings, or other sulphurs, which are much smaller.
