Sulfur Butterflies on Purple Erigeron Flowers

Sulfur butterflies are pretty though kinda plain when compared to things like Monarch butterflies, but when I saw the way the morning light was catching these sulfur butterflies from behind I ended up focusing on them during my morning walk in Woodbine Park earlier today:

I had always thought of the purple flowers as a sort of purple daisy, but apparently they are called “Purple Erigeron”, perhaps better known as “fleabane”. The butterflies certainly love them.
