The birding at the Wetland Park was bombing, so I switched to butterflies, which I find interesting, but about which I know almost nothing. This case of clear sexual dimorphism with the female white w/black and the male yellow w/black. Couldn't seem to figure it out on my own though. Lots more shots, but these seem to cover it.

Agreed. Eastern Pale Clouded Yellow(Colias erate) is the most common species in East China.
