Dingy Shield-skipper

Stanwell Park is quite well-known as a site for this species, but it took 5 visits before I was able to get one photo. In all those attempts I only saw two specimens, both females that settled by the side of a path through the forest. The first time was shortly after I'd had a bad fall, in which I shattered my macro lens. I couldn't have found the butterfly BEFORE breaking my lens, could I?
