Looks to me like Hylephila phyleus
But I'm not an expert.

Thank you, Michael!
Though it doesn't seem to be in range...

It is something in the genus Hesperia, it is hard to say more with out a view of the underside of the hindwings.

I see...
A pity, it was too active and flew away before I could take more shots.

Thanks, Mike!

Looking again, Hesperia juba seems most likely
