Photographer's Note

Wadduwa, Western Sri Lanka...

Locals tie big ropes between the palm trees, and an athletic man climbs them each day, goes from one tree to another, cutting coconuts and extracting its nectar. This process creates an opportunity for fruit bats which visit fruits and plants to lick their nectar.

Cropped.
