The 'High Level road' at Kaluaggala, Sri Lanka.

In the 1960s this road was on an embankment with shrub jungle on either side. This surrounding land would get periodically flooded by the waters of the adjoining Kelany Ganga. Now building line the road on either side of a very busy traffic highway.

Water-buffalos and Egrets, Kahahena, Waga, Sri Lanka.

Water-buffalos are excellent lawn-movers. When they feed on the grass insects take flight from the grass. The Egrets are close-by to make a meal of the insects. Symbiosis at its best.
