Black-rumped Flame-back Wood-pecker, Karandana, Avissawella, Sri Lanka.

A very shy bird. It was high up on a coconut tree. I used my Nikon 70-300 zoom VR on my Nikon D90. The shots were taken hand-held with VR on.

Cormorant making waves, Aththidiya, Sri Lanka.

I saw this bird repeatedly diving in the lake, fishing to its heart's content, on a dull, grey morning.

A Pea-cock in flight, Allai, near Kanthalai, Sri Lanka.

It is quite a heavy bird and it needs quite an effort on it's part to get airborne. I took these pictures on a rapid-fire sequence on my Nikon D90.
