[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Skippers of this particular species are flying around in my school campus in plenty now-a-days. The other day, I captured this brown coloured Skipper on a Coxcomb flower.
I do not have its exact ID, so here is a brief note from Wikipedia on Skippers in general:

A Skipper or Skipper butterfly is a butterfly of the family Hesperiidae.
They are named after their quick, darting flight habits. There are more than 3500 recognized species of Skippers and they occur worldwide, but with the greatest diversity in the Neotropical regions of Central and South America.

Thanks for looking.

Hello Ram,

A finely composed beautiful macro study indeed Ram, the contrasty colours and those soot-black eyes really make this scene very pleasant to look at. TFS it my friend!

Hello Ram,
such an exciting view with bright coloured flower to give the skipper shot a stunning view.
sharpness is very well done and the dark eye really catches the view.
Thwe smoothness of the greenish background really enhances the capture.
