Dark Palm Dart
Telicota ancilla bambusae (Moore)
Hesperiidae family

One more skipper from my backyard captured today morning. Fortunate to capture with closed and open wings. Because of good rains every night its lush green every where and hence the vibrant greens you see here.
The skipper with beautiful colors and marking a good subject to capture any time, this beauty cooperates always when approached close.
technical details:
Opened wings f5.6 at 1/90 sec
Closed wings f5.6 at 1/45 sec

Always very useful to have a view on both sides of the wings for an identification. Cute little Skipper, looks a little bit different from our species.
