Small Branded Swift at my garden

Early this month I spotted a Small Branded Swift (Pelopidas mathias mathias) basking on the leaf of my Citronella Grass plant (Cymbopogon nardus).

I also spotted a Common Palmfly (Elymnias hypermnestra agina ) a few days ago.

These are species #13 and #14 at my garden !
