Butterfly: August 20, 2019

Butterfly 4On first inspection, one might think that this is a photograph of a moth, given the rather dull shade of its wings; however, it is a butterfly. Moths have feathery antennae, while the antennae of the butterfly is smooth with a tiny ball at the end. If anybody can identify what KIND of butterfly this is, I would be very grateful.
