The Emperor's New Clothes

Hackberry Emperor

Asterocampa celtis

 

This week has been a long week, and it was nice to get out a little early today and spend some time with my wife (who I think was starting to wonder if I was ever coming home).

 

As an added bonus, I got to add a new butterfly to my lifelist - this beautiful Hackberry Emperor. When I saw it, we were both enthralled and after taking a few shots, Shari tried to figure out what it was. Try "Hackleberry Emperor", I said - miraculously I was right (well, almost). And here he or she is.
