Butterfly: Sleepy Duskywing (Erynnis brizo)

It's a Sleepy Duskywing (Erynnis brizo). The first butterfly of the season at our place this year.

On March 30th, it was flitting around the grass near the woods in the late afternoon. It would settle on stalks of the dry Andropogon grass. It would let me approach to within about six feet but then flit off to another stalk a little distance away.
