The Dingy is small and very difficult to see at times measuring only 29mm across the wingspan.
It flies low over open grassland and being dull brown blends with dead grass and patches of soil when pitched. When on something green it still needs some finding because of its size.
In bright sunlight as soon as it moves it is also difficult to track and follow.
If you haven't seen a Dingy Skipper before, you could be forgiven for thinking it was some form of small daytime moth.
I took these shots on Sunday last and are the first I have seen of this species this year.
