Hackberry emperor (larva)

Asterocampa celtis


The upper side of the wings is mostly gray-brown or orange-brown. The fore wing subterminal area has one or two eyespots, sometimes with blue centers. The underside of the wings is either tan or light gray-brown. The hind wings have a row of black, yellow-ringed, eyespots centered in blue. (information from Wikipedia)


Forested area


I wish I could identify the tree it was on, but sadly, I can't. :-(
