Butterfly sighting

Location: Fitchburg Public Library
Dane County

Came out of the library to my car and noticed something yellow in the vegetation. Since I haven't been out butterflying since September 12, I got closer to see if it was a butterfly. It was. As I got closer (no binoculars) I thought maybe it was a clouded Sulphur but then I saw that the center spots were peculiar and then I noticed the diffuse line running down the middle of the underside of the Forewing. I saw it fly. It was a Cloudless Sulphur! I couldn't believe it! (No camera along, so maybe you won't believe it either!)
