Swept from grass.

Nice pic, addition of head only image would be
useful as an identification reference.
Moved from Grass Skippers.

Least skipper
Not a caterpillar expert but this one matches description in "Wagner -Caterpillars of Eastern North America". White part of collar is twice as wide as black part and four pairs of white wax glands along subventer as well as a diagnostic face pattern when viewed after cropping and enlarging.

Moved from Butterflies and Moths.

Thank you Yurika!
