Looks like
Male Fiery Skipper (Hylephila phyleus) to me, but I agree with Jon - it'd be best to wait for an expert opinion.

Looks a lot like
a Tawny-Edged Skipper. Wait for expert ID...

 
Not sure it would be Tawny-ed
Not sure it would be Tawny-edged. Inside is to light for that.
Can't say for sure what it IS (quite possibly the Fiery but I don't have experience with those myself) but just don't think Tawny. :P Sorry.
