Sleepy Orange Butterfly

Eurema nicippe


Looked brown inside. More orange when it flew off.


Brought in some lettuce from the garden. Later I found this butterfly on a dishrag in our kitchen sink.

Thanks Ornithoptra. I've been seeing these flying around the yard for awhile. They're always so active I don't get a chance to get a good look at them.
