[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Oriental Giant Redeye
Gangara thyrsis thyrsis Fabricius, 1775,
Hesperiidae family.
The largest skipper species found in India.
We got a palm plant in out garden and got few pupa too.
Was just waiting patiently every evening for the skipper to emerge. Here is one emerged and resting on pupa case which it folds of the leaf. The weak evening sunlight helped me to get this image. I posted similar image in June this year. Hope you don't mind another one and will enjoy this image too.
