Small butterflies along the trails at Taylor Point

Walking along the trails at Taylor Point today I disturbed a lot of butterflies, particularly small orange butterflies on the weeds at the edges of the trail. One type, the grass dart skipper, would land with  it's wings out, making for a very attractive photo.

The other, the orange palm-dart skipper, lands and brings its wings together above its body, hiding the more colourful upper faces.
