Cloudless Sulphur

I've taken lots of butterfly pictures in the last few months. The little yellow ones fly so fast and so eratic, its difficult to get a good shot. At Playcard Swamp, I found these two waiting patiemtly on the edge of the swamp. Later I read that they sometimes land on the ground to lick some salt. (Phoebis sennae)

That is very strange, will have to google butterflies licking salt. Nice capture at 400mm!!
