This has been hovering around the Turk's cap this week. Bright yellow in direct sunlight. It it some kind of Sulphur? Didn't seem to like having its picture taken. TIA

Looks somewhat like a clouded to me....
It's a female cloudless sulphur - 'pretty picture!
Goodness I thought I was learning - now I don't think I'll ever be able to tell the difference in the dozens of shots I took...it's complicated...
Thanks for the identification and link!
Plant Cassia, its favorite host plant
Glad to see our Lindheimer's Senna (Cassia lindheimeri) will do according to the following link..... assuming it will survive in our north Texas blackland prairie ecoregion.

From what I understand, Pigeon Pea Cassia hosts just as well, and survives cold temps as a reseeding annual.
Good luck c your Lindheimer's Cassia and keep us posted.
