Pearly-eye
These 'eyed' ones are hard to tell apart! The Wood Nymph usually has only two eyes looking at you on the front wing. Pearly-eyes have 4, and sometimes more. This might be the Northern Pearly-eye Lethe anthedon. Great photo!
Wait for an expert, I'm not all that familiar with butterflies from Sask.

 
which...
Thanks, Les. I did find a Northern Pearly-eye ( http://bugguide.net/node/view/794625 ) at the same park not even a month prior, so maybe hey. Edit: actally I also have had a two-eye buckeye at http://bugguide.net/node/view/312646 awhile back, so I think I'll move this into the Pearly-eye. Muchly appreciated.
