The beauty of a 'yellow-billed babbler', (Seven sisters), Sri Lanka

'A boat on the river', Meethirigala, Sri Lanka.

This boat on the river is 'not sailing away'. It has no sails and is tied up for the day. It is used daily for 'sand harvesting' from the river bed. The sand in the bottom of the river, is a result of soil erosion upstream. The harvested sand is used for building purposes.
