Tea factory on a hill, Lellopitiya - Pelmadulla road, Sri Lanka.

Tea factories run independently, buy plucked tea leaves for about Rs60/- a Kg and turn out processed tea leaves for the auctions in Colombo. This is a tea factory situated at a hill top in Lellopitiya, Rathnapura, Sri Lanka.

Black-headed Ibis, Angunukolapalessa, Sri Lanka.

A totally black head and beaks, sitting on an egret like white body makes this bird very striking as it wanders over swamp or paddy land.

The distant hills are seen in the background of a tea factory in the morning hours.
