CLOSED: Butterfly in Arizona

Willis, TX(Zone 8b)

I took this photo last week in Southern Arizona (about 20 miles south of Tucson).
Any help to ID is greatly appreciated. I took several photos, but they were all about the same. This one has the most information. I didn't get the topside of the wings. He/she likes orange juice! ^_^

Wheee! That's it! Thanks so much, Flapdoodle. You certainly know your critters.
