Snakebird Over the Bentara River, Sri Lanka

Oriental Darter on the Bentara River, Sri Lanka by Son of the Morning Light on 500px.com

An oriental darter (Anhinga melanogaster), often known as a snakebird for its long serpent-like neck and head, swoops in over the Bentara River, in southwestern Sri Lanka. Shot on assignment for Serendib, the inflight magazine of SriLankan Airlines. My story, Eternal Bentota, runs in the November 2016 issue. For more on the ecosystem and wildlife of the Bentara River (including more photos), follow the link, or pick up a mag when you fly SriLankan this month.
