This skipper obliged you on your birthday, Ram!
He certainly gave way to allow you totake a sharp and well composed image from a fine POV. However despite the high quality of this image I can't give you a definite ID. However I can suggest Pelopidas conjuncta, if that's anything of a lead.
TFS and have a good week,

This is an excellent shot, the detail is just superb as are the colours, and the f/4 has isolated the Skipper from the leaf its standing on just perfectly, POV and composition all spot-on, lovely work.
All the best Rick :)
Can't help with an exact ID, but its almost certainly from the subfamily Trapezitinae and maybr the genus Mesodina. Hope that helps, they're a lot of similar-looking species in Australia and I imagine its the same in India.
Good catch though with great DOf for only f4. Good sharpness and composition.

Hello Ram Sir,
Good closeup of this skipper. The view from the top and the side of the eye is interesting. Well done Ganesh
