It appears to be a Skipper. If it was a little darker brown (not sure if photo is not correct exposure possibly due to sun) and w/ the green coloring on it head and starting down its back maybe a Long-tailed Skipper (Urbanus proteus). Various references under its common name to seek photos to compare.
