Sap Sucker ?

Question Mark Butterfly (Polygonia interrogationis) - The Orange Trail, The Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge Wilderness Area, Harding, New Jersey.

 

There were no flowers in bloom that these guys seemed to like so they spent the entire day sipping Willow sap. That was fine with me as it made for a nice steady perch, and since there was a continuous flow of sap, they simply sat there all day sucking it up.
