Every day in the hotel I have been staying in for the last three weeks, people have talked about seeing snakes...I unfortunately did not manage to see any...until today, when I saw this Oriental Rat Snake poking out of its hole, looking cautiously around. As I tried to get within range, it kept burrowing back in...only slowly did it emerge, to slither away, perhaps in search of another meal...for me, it was interesting photo shoot. Don't know how many people will like this picture, but it was certainly a different experience for me.

Amazing shot! Incredible colors and the moment - the snake seems to follow the shape of the plant. Great capture!

A nice shot that would be good also for Trek Nature
Razor sharp, nice shallow DOF allowing this snake to stand out perfectly on the green BG. Fortunately this is not a dangerous species

To be very true I was just scared to see it..And I guess that makes your image successful. Its feeling as if it will get out of my screen. Its very late here and I may see it in my dreams..and get up screaming..LOL!!
Very nice details and nice shallow DOF.
Have a nice day

Olá Hemant, I love wild animals although TE members aren't so fond of them. Your latest turtle is super cute but this one is just amazing. I mean, it has great image quality and the pose is elegant, I wonder if dangerous as well. Congratulations for the experience.
