After an uneventful journey, I spotted a monkey with her baby at Katagamuwa National Park - Sri Lanka. Though they are animals, the maternal love between the mother and her child is clearly expressed between them. I was so overjoyed as I was able to capture this beautiful portrait of the baby monkey being breast-feeded by its mother. The pure innocence and cuteness of a baby is distinctly exposed in the eyes of the baby monkey.
During early 2018, I visited Yala national park with few of my photography companions in search of Leopards. On that day luck wasn't favourable for any of us. just like all leopards were on a leave. After searching everywhere in the morning we decided to stay close to a waterhole where a leopard was sighted on the previous day.
So Waiting game was begun. At the mean time rain drops started to fall & we were hopeless! In the mild rain a Crested Hawk Eagle suddenly perched on a dead tree branch near us. As usual we took several photographs. Suddenly a White-browed fantail appeared & attacked the big predator. We realized that Hawk eagle had perched to a nesting area of the Fantail & small guy is showing its defense by attaching the Predator to send him away. Fight was lasted for good 15-20 minutes in a mild rain & Crested Hawk eagle decided to leave the war zone.
Having observed this rarity almost like a brief flash on a morning walkabout in my village near the wilderness of Wilpattu, I decided that I had to capture this enigmatic beauty because it proved to be more elusive than any mammals which I have pursued before.
This tiny wonder was resting out briefly before taking off in its echo located path through the air. I enjoyed the pride of its glistening wings and waited motionless until it started flying. Though it was a soft and short escape, I managed to catch the beauty of this marvel of nature at its best.

The toque macaque is a reddish-brown-coloured monkey endemic to Sri Lanka, where it is locally known as the rilewa or rilawa. It is named for the toque-shaped whorl of hair on its head
Troops of the toque macaque are a common sight in the Cultural Triangle, where many ancient temples are situated, hence earning them the nickname "temple monkey".
Toque macaques live only in Sri Lanka. They look very different depending on their habitat.

The picture of this little girl looking through a window gives me an insight abt the current education system which keeps all these numerous creative ideas and fantasy hopes that sprung up in these young minds trapped . This is the intellectual idea that i wanted to express by the expressions n emotions of lost hope in this little girl's eyes.
This image shows a portrait of a homeless old person. This was taken in Pettah, Sri Lanka. It shows the sorrow, helplessness, suffering, pain of this person who is living in the street without no money and no food. His eyes says lot of things which cannot express in words.
While I was completing a safari & Wilpattu National Park, Sri Lanka. we noticed a Sub Adult leopard trying to cross the road. when we stop the vehicle, He sat on a rock & looked as us with a curious face.
The world’s longest teak footbridge gently curves 1300yd across shallow Taungthaman Lake.In dry season it feels surreally high and mostly crosses seasonal vegetable gardens. But after the summer rains, the area becomes a big lake and water laps just below the floor planks. Just a few of the 1086 poles on which it stands have been replaced by concrete supports.
A great time to visit the bridge is just after sunrise when hundreds of villagers and monks commute back and forth across it. The light is often best around an hour before sunset, but by then there will be a lot of tourists and sellers.
Power, Money, Politics, Policies, can knee down anyone in this society. This is my second attempt of conceptual photography. I always wanted to use my creativity and experimenting new photography levels. Always think out of th box, don't stuck in the same frame.

They have to work hard for their work and work truly everyday, and their salaries will get better and easier so we need to respect always all hard workers
I found these mating insects called Banana Stalk Flies near Kahathuduwa, Sri lanka.
They are members of Neriidae family (relatively small family of true flies with long, stilt-like legs)

Your vision is the colors. Otherwise blind. But who have ever stopped on a colorful dam and enjoyed it's colors. You would see more in it through a lense and it's colors will definitely take you to a different dimension to peek into the colors of the nature as in the picture.
Like other bee-eaters, this species is a richly coloured, slender bird. It is about 9 inches (16–18 cm) long with about 2 inches made up by the elongated central tail-feathers. The sexes are not visually distinguishable. The entire plumage is bright green and tinged with blue especially on the chin and throat. The crown and upper back are tinged with golden rufous. The flight feathers are rufous washed with green and tipped with blackish. A fine black line runs in front of and behind the eye. The iris is crimson and the bill is black while the legs are dark grey. The feet are weak with the three toes joined at the base. Southeast Asian birds have rufous crown and face, and green underparts, whereas Arabian beludschicus has a green crown, blue face and bluish underparts. The wings are green and the beak is black. The elongated tail feathers are absent in juveniles. Sexes are alike.
This photo is taken at the hill stations of Sri Lanka and the two trains of two generations were met at a station and the bluish one is a newer Chinese set and the maroon one is an older Romanian coach.It's amazing how it still serves for the Sri Lankan railways for years.

The top of the head has several bony ridges, along the edge of the snout (canthal ridge), in front of the eye (preorbital), above the eye (supraorbital), behind the eye (postorbital), and a short one between the eye and ear (orbitotympanic). The snout is short and blunt, and the space between the eyes is broader than the upper eyelid width. The ear drum or tympanum is very distinct and is at least as wide as two-thirds the diameter of the eye. The first finger is often longer than the second and the toes are at least half webbed. A warty tubercle is found just before the junction of the thigh and shank (subarticular tubercle) and two moderate ones are on the shank (metatarsus). No skin fold occurs along the tarsus. The “knee” (tarsometatarsal articulation) reaches the tympanum or the eye when the hind leg is held parallel along the side of the body. The dorsal side is covered with spiny warts. The parotoids are prominent, kidney-shaped, or elliptical and elongated. The dorsal side is yellowish or brownish and the spines and ridges are black. The underside is unmarked or spotted. Males have a subgular vocal sac and black pads on the inner fingers that help in holding the female during copulation.
- Рейтинг фотографов по странам и городам строится на основе 3-х лучших фотографий автора и их относительной позиции в каждой отдельной номинации. Рейтинг в номинации "Мобильная фотография" учитывается в меньшей степени для формирования рейтинга. В списке показывается одна фотография автора с лучшим рейтингом.
- В списке опубликованы только работы которые прошли 2-й этап голосования.
- The rating of photographers by countries and cities is based on the three best photos of the author and their relative position in each separate nomination. Rating in the nomination "Mobile Photography" is taken into account to a lesser extent for rating formation. The list shows one photo of the author with the best rating.
- Only those photos have been published in the list that passed the second stage of voting.
More recently, we have made an improvement and now we have a new feature - "Series uploading." Even now, you can download from 3 to 10 photos in the series, united by a common idea. Voting for the series will take place separately from other series in their nominations. vote principle remains the same as for single photos. At the moment, series uploading is available for nominations: "Children's Photography", "Wild Animals", "Staged Photography" and "Reportage photo". This feature is available for any improved account.
