A cloudless sulphur butterfly feeds on a sunflower

 Image Number D4028-1

A cloudless sulphur butterfly, Phoebis sennae, feeds on sunflower nectar. Its genus name is derived from Phoebe, the sister of Apollo, a god of Greek and Roman mythology, and sennae is for the genus Senna, to which many of the cloudless sulphur's larval host plants belong.
