What’s on my rhododendron?

This moth was on my tomato cage this morning. I grabbed my snap shot camera and caught a couple of shots on the rhododendron before it flew away. Is this a good moth, or a bad moth? Is it even a moth? (It’s body is thick and fuzzy.) Maybe it is a butterfly. (It’s colorful, I’m seeing it during the day, and it surely looks like there are clubs on the end of the antennae.)

Update! It’s a butterfly–a skipper butterfly. Thanks Denise Foley and Bill Johnson!
