What a fascinating picture!
I keep on wondering how you manage to find all these animals and to take such great pictures of them...

Thanks for your comments Frieda, MD and K

@Frieda,
I found all these animals by spending a day at Sinaharaja Rain forest :D

@MD;
I was like 4-5 meters away from it. He is a very tiny snake when comparing to this close up =D

@K;
As they told me it is diya naya. Btw what’s the difference between diya naya and diya bariya? :D

Only Tikiriliya is missing. =D Classic piece of work once again! And venomous or not, this one has a deadly glare. -__-
