[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have captured this Skipper in our yard. I don't know exactly what species it is. Hope TN friends can help me here. Then I shall be able to add my NOTE here.

I always prefer eye level shot. In case of big animal I don't need to work hard, but in such situation when species is so tiny, I need to spend extra effort and its result is now in front of you.

Thank you Nigel for your help to find out the exact species.

Soon I'm going to add NOTE about this species.

smashing detail, great expo; .. quality bf take here

Hi, Srikumar
Indian butterflies are a little outside my core expertise, but this is certainly one of the "Palm Dart" species, and the underwing venation and pattern seems to best match the Dark Palm Dart Telicota bambusae. The lighting is not ideal, but the image is nicely sharp, well exposed and balanced.
Best wishes, Nigel.
