Sometimes it is not about taking the best photograph. But about capturing a scene so vivid in your memory. A scene so magical it must surely have been torn from the pages of a fairy tale. These treasured moments, hidden in the jungles of Willpattu, sometimes show themselves, even if just for a fleeting moment.... not long enough to get an image even remotely in focus! But so special nonetheless. . . . #srilanka #ceylonwildsafaris #leopard #leopardtrails #wilpattu #srilankawildlife #animals #travel #igerssa #igs_wildlife #thruthelens #bestnatureshot #cs_animals #nature #wildlife #safari #wildlifephotography #animalpolis #canon #wilderness #nature_perfection #wildlifeaddicts #allnatureshots #natgeoyourshot #andbeyondtravel

The leopard is the most widely distributed of all wild cats, being found in varying densities from Sub-Saharan Africa through the Middle East, Central and South Asia, and the Russian Far East. . Forced to play second fiddle to lions and tigers throughout much of its range, the leopard can lay claim to the title of apex predator in a few select locations, such as the island of Sri Lanka, where the two larger felines died out tens of thousands of years ago. . Due to this lack of competition, Sri Lanka’s leopards are less nocturnal and less arboreal than their continental brethren, resulting in a unique wildlife-viewing experience for the safari-goer. . Our Sri Lanka Ultimate Wildlife Safari includes stops at the national parks of Yala and Wilpattu, two of the country’s leopard hotspots. This extensive 22-day itinerary also takes in the ancient rock fortress of Sigiriya, the tropical beaches of Weligama and the elephant herds that make their home in Gal Oya National Park.

Flying fox community awakening at dusk in Sri Lanka. The Indian flying fox is one of the largest bats in the world. It primarily eats fruits and drinks nectar from flowers. While it is considered a pest among fruit growers, these bats play an important role in pollination and seed propagation for hundreds of plants. Also the males are surprisingly well endowed…

🐆 Hey everyone.. meet Pulli..! We met this Leopard Cub Pulli, a tiger Cub, a Lion Cub & lots and lots of snakes/ pythons at the Dehiwala Zoo! 𝙒𝙖𝙩𝙘𝙝 #𝙍𝙤𝙗𝙖𝙀𝙫𝙚 on @tv1lk 𝐓𝐎𝐃𝐀𝐘 𝐀𝐓 𝟓𝐏𝐌 to find out about Pulli & his friends! This was the best show I’ve ever had the privilege of hosting! I highly recommend you guys watch it! . ❌For everyone asking, they DO NOT let anyone hold or carry these animals like I am doing. They made an exception for us because we were shooting a tv show. That too under the supervision of their officials. Please do not expect to go to the Zoo and be allowed to carry these animals.❗️ . 🔆Pulli is a 4 month old leopard cub in the Dehiwala Zoo. Pulli’s mother was hunted and killed, so the wonderful people at the Young Zoologists Association have taken it upon themselves to raise Pulli and hopefully release him & other rejected cubs to the wild. . I know the Dehiwala Zoo has been getting a lot of hate for some of their practices but seeing the Young Zoologists Association there and their efforts to save and care for these animals first hand gave me so much solace! They’re incredible people who truly LOVE these creatures. Please watch today’s episode to better understand how these creatures are being cared for! ♥️ PLUS Young Zoologists association is having their Art Exhibition at the JDA Perera Gallery from the 21st to 23rd. It’s free! Go check them out! . . #SriLanka #SriLankan #SriLankaZoo #DehiwalaZoo #Zoologist #ZoologistsAssociation #Wildlife #Sanctuary #ConservingWildlife #ConservationEfforts #AnimalLover #Animals #SriLankaWildlife

Gamunu. A young Male tusker in Yala. After a fight with another tusker was badly injured. This picture was captured when he finally got back on his feet after a day or two. He lost one of his tusks during a fight with the same. . . . . . . #elephants #tuskers #cannon #srilanka #srilankawildlife #yala #bbcwildlife #naturephotography #jungle #natgeo #naturephotography #natgeowild #travel #travelsrilanka #wildlifephotography #wildlife

Everyone loves dolphins ❤️ bottlenose dolphins on the first photo and spinner dolphins on the second one. 🐬 Even though we were splashed with water and the boat was rocking up and down I managed to get a few good shots 📸 #dolphins #bottlenosedolphin #spinnerdolphins #srilankaphotography #srilankatravel #dolphinspotting #srilankawildlife #kalpitiya #dolphinphotography #wildlifephotography
