Hackberry Butterfly

Hackberry Butterfly

This Hackberry Butterfly was photographed near Cordell Hull lake in middle Tennessee.

Have you figured out what that strange surface the butterfly is standing on is? It's my arm.


Common Name: Hackberry Butterfly
Scientific Name: Asterocampa celtis
Similar species include the Tawny Emperor (Asterocampa clyton) and the Painted Lady. However, the Tawny Emperor does not have the single eye spots the Hackberry butterfly has on the tops of their wings.
