Its said that it is 15 times more venomous than a cobra. The deadliest Indian snake.
This snake was rescued from bathroom of a house near my area. Today, I took it out for a photo session. When it got soil on its face and body, I had to give him bath thus he looking so fresh and has some water drops on its body.
I was about 10 -15 inches from the mouth of the snake, but very very very careful. I did calm down the snake first.
I have used Canon 180mm L series Macro lens. Not the 180mm zoom, which has given me a safe distance to work.
I never like to cross my limits with snakes, neither I like to show off. Do not try this kind of shot without an expert around. I have been handling snakes for 16 years now. I have never fooled around with snakes, neither I like to do macho man with snakes.
