Gatekeeper Butterfly

A gatekeeper butterfly (Pyronia tithonus), probably a male because the females do not have the brownish band in the middle of the yellow patch on the forewings.  The meadow brown butterfly is similar, but has less yellow on the forewings and none on the hindwings, and has only one white dot in each eye-spot.
