Calycopis cecrops

Calycopis cecrops
Montrose, Laurens County, Georgia, USA
June 11, 2011
Size: approx. 10 mm BL
Found on sweet-gum leaf in forested area. This specimen put on a show whilst lapping up dew, rubbing its wings together longitudinally and waving the "frills" on the back wings. I wasn't aware the frills could be manipulated separately like that.
