Don't know if this is enough for an ID.

Not an expert but...
I would suggest Fiery Skipper (Hylephila phyleus)




but please wait for other opinions before moving this image.

 
Yep
Fiery Skipper it is. That jagged black border is fairly distinctive.

 
Thanks for the back-up Nick!
I will move this image to the guide.

 
Thanks.
Thanks for the ID!
