Oriental Grass Dart,
Taractrocera maevius,
hesperiidae family.

One more image from my new lens. On my first day outing with this lens in Lalbagh I came across this tiny skipper among grass, its colors and patterns almost matches the grass blades and hard to find too. It was early morning and the cool weather kept this Dart quiet for me to use tripod for this image.
Hope you will enjoy this image too.
