Hello Abhirup,
What a remarkable photo. Good sharpness and beautiful natural colours. The water is a very nice contrasting background here.

Hello Abhirup,
A nice shot of this neat looking Indian Rat Snake which looks as though it is walking on water. I like the sharp focus you managed to achieve and the way the sun reflects off it's side as it is swimming. I'm sure it was moving very fast as you took this shot, otherwise it wouldn't be positioned so high up in the water. Well done!!

Hello Abhirup,
Very nice image. Fantastic clarity and outstanding details. What a interesting specie of snake.....The light and exposure are very good.
Thanks for sharing!

Wow, the fellow is slithering on top of water, Abhirup!
Very crisp image, indeed.

Most uncommon for TN. Quite remarkable.
Well focused; even the flickering tongue can be viewed.
The watery B/G is most suitable to show this species on the move.
Best regards,
Mario from Canada.
