Caprona ransonnetti, commonly known as the Golden Angle, is a butterfly belonging to the family Hesperiidae. Occurs Ceylon; Orissa; Nilgiris.

Upperside fuliginous ochreous-brown. Male ; forewing with three small semi-transparent white spots before the apex (and sometimes one or two very minute spots obliquely below them), two spots within end of the cell, a slender spot between the upper and middle median veins, a larger spot between the latter vein and submedian, and followed below it by two small obliquely disposed spots ; a marginal double row of pale indistinct small lunules ; hindwing with a broad medial discal macular pale ochreous band traversed by brown veins and a spot within end of the cell, the outer discal area suffused with grey-brown. Cilia alternated with white. Female ; forewing with the spots and marginal lunules, and the macular band on hindwing more prominent, the latter also more distinctly bordered with grey.

Namastay Haraprasan,
Congratulations on your 500th TN posting!
You celebrate the occasion with an excellent capture of this species of skipper taken from a fine POV to show the open-wing pose with excellent sharpness and natural colours. The contrast against the leafy natural Bg is optimal in this top grade well composed image.
Thanks for sharing this beauty, what must be a first for TN. If so congratulations on both counts!
I look forward to seeing the next 500!

TFS and regards,

Congratulations Haraprasan for the achievement! 500 !! Jeee! A great number indeed! Well we have a lovely capture with powerful warm colors and impeccable detail here! I love the point of view and the composition as well. Good job my friend! Please pay attention to the overall color existence here in my opinion the yellow cast is a bit heavy! But that's obviously is my opinion only! Have a great day!

Hi, dear Haraprasan.
It is a great event. You managed to create an amazing gallery which counts whole 500 remarkable pictures. My heartfelt congratulations. Pictured subject is wonderful. Butterfly on a leaf, remote BG create a nice scene. Details of the skipper are ultimate and POV is also very impressive. Well done and best wishes.
