Terrific photo from Sri Lanka on National Geographic competition shortlist

Sri Lanka has made the cut in the National Geographic Traveller photography competition, which includes images across six categories ranging from Northern Ireland to Nepal.

As announced in The Guardian UK, the winners will be revealed on February 28.

The Sri Lanka entry is this terrific action shot taken by Sajith Buddikha Withanage in Yala National Park.
