Butterfly sighting

Location: Perrot State Park, Trempealeau, WI
Trempealeau County

When I asked for ID on a Wisconsin Butterfly/Moth FB page regarding photos I took today of a butterfly, I was guided to submit my sighting for a Common Checkered-Skipper Burnsius communis, as these are uncommon in the area I was in today. I only photographed the one I saw.
