Hackberry Emperor - Asterocampa celtis - female

Hackberry Emperor - Asterocampa celtis - Female
Danville/garden, Hendricks County, Indiana, USA
September 19, 2010
Size: about 3/4 in long
I watched this one for some time, and it kept flying away from me...finally as if to just end the pursuit, it came over and landed on my shoe, wings open to get its picture taken....Most of the time though, it was sipping juice from fallen pears, and fighting off bees, wasps, and other butterflies for the fruit.
