Hello Haraprasan,
a nicely captured skipper couple well standing out against the green colour of the vegetation. You selected the optimal point of view to present the scene.
Without seeing the upperside wing pattern it is very difficult to identify the species. So, I do not speculate.
Best wishes, Peter

Hi Haraprasan,
Interesting POV. Ilike the mirror image impression the 2 butterflies create. Nice sharp image but I like the soft light green leaves that create a good BG.

Hello Haraprasan,
This is a great shot of a pair of mating skippers, the ID of which one can speculate on. Nicely composed against a green BG with good sharpness and lighting.

This is a rare shot - I have never seen mating Skippers. Very sharp image with clear details and fine focus. The green leafy BG looks superb and it highlights the subjects well. Excellent POV to capture this tender moment and very nicely composed. Kudos.
