Dakhan Small Banded Swift,
Pelopidas mathias mathias, Fabricius, 1798.
Hesperiidae family...

During my yesterday's butterfly walk saw many species of butterflies but not many images...Only this cute little skipper gave me some time for a decent image but the sun was almost up and the top light gave some problems....hope you like this species of skipper.

Hi Nagaraj.
Skipper was so kind for you :). I like wonderful low and a little bit back POV. All details of the small charming creature are shown perfectly. Simple subject is also very impressive and horizontal cropping of the scene is the best. Warm regards and TFS.

Hello Nagaraj,
A wonderful presentation of this beautiful little Skipper. You have photographed it in fine detail and beautiful natural colors. I love the low POV and your choice of an f/8 aperture resulted in some very good DOF.
