Great!. Now, I would like to get a photograph like that. It is a highly scarce resident in Sri Lanka and a species which has declined steeply here.

I was pleasantly surprised to see many at Malaysia.

"Do they not see the birds above them, spreading out their wings and folding them in? None upholds them except the Most Beneficent (Allah). Verily, He is the All-Seer of everything".
Surah Al-Mulk (67:19)
