Meet the Hobomok Skipper Butterfly (Poanes hobomok) -- at least I think it is. There are something like 3,500 different species in this family. I saw this little bugger perched on a poison ivy leaf during a lunchtime walk along the rail trail near the Mountain State Company.
I was struck by its weird wing design.
Post Script: The Massachusetts Butterfly Club (!) is a great resource for images.
