Dingy Skipper

If you like a challenge then finding and tracking a Dingy Skipper butterfly to enable you to take a few photographs of it is something you should try.
They remain close to the ground in open spaces and when disturbed fly off at speed. 
With only a wingspan of 29mm and their dull brown colouring they are then difficult to follow.

  2. I have enough trouble following the flight of large, colourful butterflies! Come to that I was having trouble following the flight of a Hobby the other day. I'm OK with jumbo jets!
