Correct
Looks right to me, Poanes melane. Nice photos.

 
Thanks, J.D.
It just plopped down next to me. Couldn't get the wings open, but it was a nice poser. I enjoyed having rocks instead of yellow flowers in the picture.

The vast majority of grass skippers here are Fiery; saw my first of the year recently.

Thanks again for the ID and your kind words.
