Namaste Himanshu - Here in our area I have seen this species a lot, but didn't know its ID. Thanks for its ID. Well captured. Thumbnail looks dark, but after clicking I can see its natural colour and details well. Well managed BG. Thanks for sharing. Regards and have a nice WE. Good Night- Srikumar
