where to go?

where to go?
Today morning I witnessed a very rare event- King Cobra mating.
While going through those images I suddenly got struck at this image by remembering Ganesh' article
( http://naturelyrics.com/blog/creative-a ... of-tigers/ )

Waiting for your views and commemts.

This probably is the rarest of the rare image considering the fact that it is very difficult find a King Cobra in wild let alone a mating event.
From creative nature photography perspective personally I think better angle probably helped here (may be lower angle to include even blurred faces of folks in the back). I think focus is bit off but consider the anxiety you might have had this is expected :) From natural history perspective I would love to see the sequence, in case you are uploading it on to web please share the link.

Ganesh,This is not an intentionally made image. I was really excited and just taking images. I knew that out of the images taken only 2% may yield good result. Actually in this image the persons in the backgtround are focussed instead of snakes due to focussing problems in my lens.
I did not want to share this image here as it does not have any creative value. As I said I remembered your article while going through this image and thought of sharing it with you people.
There were at least 20 people watching the mating. Cobras might have disturbed very much.
I have some better images and shall post it on INW and will give link.

I am posting the original color version ( just converted to jpg) here

While cropping I have intentionally cut the heads ! to symbolise we had no head at that time.( Yes , it's too much imagination !! but... :) )

Adithya, Works for me. Great situation and well taken. Take this image to Man & nature or Man & Wild sections of Photo exhibition.

Cheers, Shankar Kiragi
