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

  2. O my!I'm scared of snakes.But i had one in my kitchen for one whole day,i just saw its shed skin,didnt look up to see the guy on the door.Packed it in a bag and let it free among the trees.
    How near did u go to take this pic?

  3. Thanks for your comments Frieda, MD and K

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

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

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

  4. Think both names are used for same snake. I also not sure..

  5. lovely shot !
    tinge of its eye adds to the fierceness ...

  6. @K;
    Thanks mate.ya, looks like it's the same snake :)
