TITLE: "Pelican portrait"
This image was captured at the Diyasaru Park in Sri Lanka, during an early morning walk. This Spot billed pelican was swimming early morning, and feeding itself with delicious fish in the fresh waters. I had to camouflage my self to convince the bird that I'm not a danger, until it came very close to my cameras and it was worth waiting for me to capture the portrait.

I'm Avanka Fernando a professional in the field of Education in Sri Lanka. Wildlife photography is my favorite hobby which I really enjoy. I have been involved in wildlife photography for the past 9-10 years but I was able to invest more time and commitment from around 2016 onwards. Over the past years, I have travelled to many parts of the country including National Parks, Wetlands & other places to capture the fascinating flora & fauna. My objective is to give a different experience of nature and wildlife to all my viewers through photography and create awareness to promote nature conservation.
