[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Borbo cinnara, commonly known as the Rice Swift or Formosan Swift, is a butterfly belonging to the family Hesperiidae. It is found in Sri Lanka, India, Burma, Vietnam and Australia.

This one was found sitting calmly on a blade of grass in a forested valley, and it did allow me a close up shot.

Photo taken under partially cloudy conditions.

Namaste Himanshu,
Beautiful capture of this Swift in its natural habitat.Few days ago I posted a swift also,but was not sure about the species.
Nice light and details.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice time,

I'm seeing a lot of Skippers these days here in Jammu, Himanshu, and I'm also going to post one which I shot a couple of days ago.
Very crisp close-up macro with exceptional sharpness and natural colours.
I find it difficult to identify these creatures, so it's satisfying to see your specimen classified as Rice Swift.
Thanks and regards.
