Looks like
Fiery Skipper (Hylephila phyleus)

 
Thank you!
I appreciate your help. I looked at Fiery Skipper in my guidebook and decided against it - I seem to be hopeless at identifying butterflies. Although these are poor images, I won't frass them, as they seem to be the only ones representing Kansas in June.

 
Keep practicing
You'll get better. And the fact is, grass skippers are some of the harder critters out there.

 
Thanks
I appreciate the encouragement!
