I went to Sri Lanka to test my Tamron 150-600mm lens in the wild. In every corner you will find some animal just waiting for its photo opportunity. Like the bird seen above, it was very calm and did not mind getting photographed. The bird is a green bee-eater.
The pictures above are showing a purple Heron, cattle Egrets, Little Cormorant, Grey Heron, Intermediate Egret and a purple Heron flying.
A little purple swamphen is in the picture above. I was lucky to get a picture of it before it ran away. This was from the Bundala national park, a bird sanctuary.
A fight between 2 males that both wants to have the little island behind them with one female. The birds are called White-breasted Waterhen.
Most of the pictures are not from a national park. These birds can be found in the wild anywhere in Sri Lanka.
This month I went abroad. I have visited Sri Lanka in Asia. A great opportunity to see wild animals. All pictures have been taken with the Tamron 150-600mm lens on a Canon 60D. The pictures are taken in Bundala national park.
Above are some pictures of grey langurs. They come in big groups and dont mind if you stop by for a visit. I was pretty close when I saw the monkeys and they were very busy eating leaves.
I will upload some more pictures of birds in another segment. Do not forget to follow this site to keep yourself updated with more news.
I have been away for awhile and the reason for that is because I went to Sri Lanka to take some nice pictures of wild animals. I went to Yala National Park to see if I could get a glimpse of some leopards. I was lucky to see two. They were up in a tree and there were leaves and branches covering the leopards. So I had to be patient and wait for my moment to take the pictures. That is the challenge when you want to take pictures of animals. Good thing that I had my Tamron 150-600mm lens with me. Otherwise I would not have gotten these close ups. I also bought a Canon 70D camera body that I used to take these pictures. I will be doing a review of Canon 70D in another segment. I will be uploading some more pictures of some interesting looking birds in the coming post. For now you can enjoy these pictures.
