Play With Prey

Species: Pied Kingfisher | Location: Chobe River, Botswana

It is a basic ritual any kingfisher performs when they capture their prey – to toss them up and eat them or calm them down by hitting the prey on a branch before eating them. I believe this aligns the prey with the beak for easy swallowing!

About The Photographer

Cropped ravi tennakoon

My Passion for photography started from my young age even though I could not afford to own a camera. I used to barrow camera from a friends n went on clicking shots of nature. Being wildlife lover photography really gave me an opportunity to record beautiful moments I witness in the wild and allow the same to be available for others to see. I believe photography can be used as the media to take a message to everyone with regards to how important it is to preserve nature.
