The cobra, at last!
I've been hunting for some snakes lately to photograph some. I got some photos but none were very impressive and looked quite common. It is hard to photograph snakes in the wild here because what you get here are mostly venomous and they are hard to find these days, thanks to the concrete jungles growing so fast.
This is the best shot I got in the last 2 weeks and I uploaded only this one. (Snakes aren't in a great demand unless very colorful - and not many colorful snakes here)
This one looked quite healthy. Shot this photo from a very close range to fill in the entire screen with the scale texture. I really tried to make it stand but well, they have their moods.
It is a spectacled cobra by the way.
Thanks to sir Austin Steven's show and his encouraging me via Twitter to get to know snakes better. They have an amazing world of their own! :)
Here's a gharial by the way, hidden inside the vegetation near a swamp. They are native to some parts of India only and are getting nearly wiped out, again, as always, thanks to concrete jungles. :/
And yet another bulbul bird eating a little guy up. Got this photo too during the same "expedition".
I don't know if these would ever sell. There are wonderful wildlife photographers out there. But there's always hope.
And when there is no hope, there is $0.6 out of them. ;)
Yeah, I'm exclusive!
