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

Belted Kingfishers

An Osprey took off with a catfish. A belted kingfisher followed the Osprey halfway before turning back. I missed making a good photo with the Osprey and its catch but I was able to locate the kingfishers later:

Here’s the failed attempt at capturing the Osprey:

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.

Black-throated Blue Warbler

A little birdie whose existence I was unaware of, until I saw it ‘hopping’ about tree branches near the ground.
