Oriental Giant Redeye,
Gangara thyrsis thyrsis, Fabricius, 1775.
Hesperiidae family.
The largest skipper found in India. I already posted freshly emerged Redeye resting on its pupal case. Today one more emerged and lucky to capture this opened wing. After emerging it will open its wings like this for around five minuted and closes to its resting posture, it will hardly open its wings like this again. This one found in our garden next to the wall and under the tree, the sunlight falling through the leaves. hope you like this one.

Hello Nagaraj,
A great shot of this beautifully marked skipper. I think it is special since you managed to capture it when it's wings were just drying and still in this opened position. Excellent detail and vivid yet natural colors. Well done!!

TFS the beauty MF Nagaraj! Excellent details.
