Wilpathu National Park - Sri Lanka

Recently we were in Sri Lanka for their District Conference. On the Friday before the conference, we joined the three senior couples who are serving in that wonderful country in making a visit to the Wilpathu National Park. This park is located north of Colombo. It took us about four hours to drive there. Because of our schedule, we were there during the middle of the day, which is not the best time for observing wildlife. Nonetheless, we were able to see a number of animals and birds. We hope you enjoy the pictures almost as much as we enjoyed seeing the creatures in real life:

Can you see the wild deer in the shadows?

What about now?
