I saw this very small skipper in NW Montgomery County. Photos are clear enough, but bad angles.

We must admit that we have trouble with exact species identifications on Skippers, but we feel confident this is a Grass Skipper in the family Hesperinae. Based on this and other BugGuide images, it might be the Delaware Skipper, Anatrytone logan. We love your image with the partially opened wings. The patterns remind us of a Rorschach test.
Thanks to a comment from Richard Stickney, we are further clarifying that this is a Sachem, which matches this BugGuide image.
