A Brushfoot Butterfly - Frassed
Lighting / reflections makes it hard to identify this Brushfoot butterfly any further. The overall orange color reminds of some type of fritillary, crescent, or checkerspot.

Moved from Butterflies and Skippers.

 
Emperor?

 
Good call BugIdentifier -
I didn't go far enough through the Brushfoots. Matches up pretty well to Hackberry Emperor. Thought it looked extremely familiar. We have them in droves here in Georgia.
