    Apparently my comment didn’t go through for some reason. Trying again.

    Very nicely done. We have something here called the Woodland Skipper. Different genus (https://linnet.geog.ubc.ca/efauna/Atlas/Atlas.aspx?sciname=Ochlodes%20sylvanoides) but very similar-looking.

    Mike.

    Third time trying this…

    Nicely done. We have a similar species here, the Woodland Skipper – Ochlodes sylvanoides.

    Mike.

    Mike, thanks for commenting.  I took this picture in Oahu.  I was actually out looking for shorebirds

    when this guy popped into view.  It is my first time seeing this particular species even though they are suppossed to

    be common on the island.
