It is the most natural on-the-spot shot of this snake, Abhirup.
The snake is in perfectly sharp focus and the colours and details on it are wonderful.

Hello Abhirup,
Try telling the snake that it is not in it's natural habitat...I believe it would disagree with you:) I would be thrilled to capture such a fine image as this. The focus is tac sharp and every scale is shown in exceptional detail. Wonderful eye contact displaying excellent facial features. Colors are natural looking and you could not ask for any better exposure. As far as the BG....I would expect nothing less when photographing the subject in high grass like this. Great shot of this attractive Indian Rat Snake!! TFS.
