I've looked in my field guide and I can't seem to figure out what this little guy is. Maybe not a butterfly, but a moth?

Thanks Magpye...I believe it is the Arizona Metalmark. The others don't really show that it is in my area. I didn't see the Arizona from that link, so I searched it out, and I think you've nailed it!! Thanks bunches
