Northern Flicker

I recently saw a Northern Flicker for the first time.  A pair was foraging on the ground with a flock of Starlings. One perched on the fence for a brief photographic moment before flying off.

I also celebrated my 24th birthday on the 7th. Grateful for the eyes that see – grateful to exist.

Tufted Gray Langurs

First the individual portraits: IMG_4871IMG_4851

In Sri Lanka if we want to insult someone for being ugly we say they look like the Gray Langur (Heli Wandura).

Secondly, the social side:

I personally love the last photo where the langur is holding the baby and looking thoughtful. There’s some humanness about it. Also, it was very protective of the baby.. he soon turned to the side, hiding the baby from my sight.
