'Once there were green-fields, touched by the sun,...'

 Modernisation has come to Nawalapitiya. Telephone and Electricity pylons with their accompanying wires, cellphone transmission towers on the hills and reams of coloured plastic despoiling the once virgin beauty. That is the price of modernisation.

On a cold sunny morning in Nawalapitiya, I saw this cat having a nap on a scooter parked outside a bakery. The scooter and cat appeared to belong to the owner of the bakery.

Black-rumped flameback wood-pecker

I spotted this beautiful bird going up and down the trunk of a pinus tree picking up larvae. I saw this at Nawalapitiya Sri Lanka. It was about 150 meters away and I had to use a maximum zoom of 20X on my Fuji Finepix S1500.

I took this picture at Nawalapitiya, Sri Lanka.
