Snake in the rain
recently visited Amboli in MH. A place called Cherapunji of Maharashtra.
Even after spotting the snake heavy rains did not allow me to take out my gears for almost 1-1.30 hrs. and then finally nature obliged :D

Wish you all Happy Monsoon !

Thanks Hrishikesh. Initially there was total darkness with unbearably heavy rains. I was using strobes but no interesting O/P. later when rains stopped I saw
a bright foggy backdrop and the shining drops created feel of rainforest. I switched off the strobe and shot few frames and ended up the way I wanted. :)

That is one deadly 'Thoranam'! Perhaps slightly less sharp image would look better? TFS.

Very interesting pratik... how about slightly cropping the frame from the top so that the horizontal branch is pushed towards the edge of the frame.

Ganesh sir, we've seen plenty number of herpetofauna during this years visit. One of my friend spotted this Malabar pit viper drenched in hailstrom. I immediately rushed to car to take camera although rains didn't allow to take a single image for next hour. later I went to the same spot as rains stopped. It was pure delight to see the snake at the same place! :)

@ Thanks Madhav, Shivang... agree with your suggestions :)

This is a perfect Monsoon wildlife photograph! Just love the pose and drop on the snake. As Madhav mentioned, one deadly Thorana for sure!
