hackberry emperor

Asterocampa celtis


This species is a North American member of the Nymphalidae family, otherwise known as the "brush-footed" butterflies.


This specimen was observed at the top of a narrow limestone/dolomite canyon in the forested Grand Gulf State Park near Thayer, Missouri.


The butterfly is seen here attracted to the sweat on my walking stick which I am holding horizontally as I photograph it.
