Brimstone
Description:

I thought this was a fairly good example to show the difference between the female and male Brimstone Butterfly.
Female left (greenish) - Male right (yellowish)
In all my other attempts I have not been able to get the difference to show up that well. These two settled on the same Burdock flower within seconds of each other.
