Butterfly sighting

Location: Spangler's and Never's Dam Landings
Polk County

Hoards of Hackberry Emperors greeted my car at the parking lot at both landings. Three Tawny Emperors were seen at Never's Dam Landing--one would land on my shoulder, then fly to the car. I've seen butterflies feeding on strange things--this is a first for a discarded cigarette package.
