Painted stork

While on safari in Yala Nature Reserve in Sri Lanka, our tracker told the driver to stop and then pointed out some small crocodiles sunbathing in the mud on the other side of a fair sized bit of water. He did very well to spot them without binoculars, but he would have been extremely disappointed if he had known that I was not in the slightest bit interested in taking shots of these little crocodiles, and instead was busy shooting away, capturing this wonderful Painted Stork (Mycteria Leucocephala) that was prancing around on the near side of the water.
