Clouded Yellow Butterfly on a Purple Morning Glory, Black Creek, Fultondale
Canon Rebel T2i, EF 50mm f/1.8, 1/320s @ f/5.6, ISO 100
Although the Clouded Yellow Butterfly can be seen any year, the Clouded Yellows are prone to mass migrations, which occasions can be known "Clouded Yellow Years."

  Fun Fact about the Morning Glory: In parts of Southeast Asia, the morning glory is known as "Water Spinach," so if you're ever in a pinch for some leafy greens, relief may be close at hand.
