Species: Pied Kingfisher | Location: Village between Bundala and Yala, Sri Lanka

I was on a trip to Sri Lanka and had spent the morning at Bundala Park. The guide suggested we go to a wetland in a village between Bundala and Yala. We had many good sightings there. We then drove along another canal near the village. I saw a Kingfisher on a snag. Suddenly it took off, and I was able to get the flying shot.

About The Photographer

Cropped marianbrazilsm

I'm an avid traveler who is trying to see as many areas of the world as possible. My goal is to see these environments before they are significantly impacted by climate change. I was shooting Nikon, but switched to Canon in 2014. Macros of flowers and plants were my first SLR subjects, but once I purchased longer lenses I've added birds, mammals and pretty much anything that moves. After each trip I make presentations in the local community, to try to build awareness of these areas and the issues that they face. Hopefully this will encourage more people to contribute to the support of these fragile environments.
