Nice one - is it one of the 'Skipper' butterflies?

It's a Skipper, not a Moth, difficult to identify the exact species from this angle, but definitely a Butterfly. It's an unusual way to photograph a Butterfly and all the better for it.

Thanks all. I did wonder if it was a Skipper but I have never seen one this small before, it was literally the same size as my little finger nail.
