Trying to ID some older non-bird nature pics and I'm stuck on this one.  Taken in upstate NY on October 7 of this year. I think it might be a type of Sulfur?

Your second set of butterflies are 1. a Silver-spotted Skipper and 2. possibly a Wild Indigo Duskywing.

I'd consider a Juvenal's Duskywing for that last wing, but I should note that even experts have problems with this genus.

You were laughing and I was busy trying to find a picture of a poodle on a forewing.

Too soon old and too late smart. :wacko:

Looks more like a duck than a poodle to me.

That's a Question Mark.

They're named for the question-mark marking on the forewing visible from the underside.
