[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The largest species of venomous snakes that we find in India... King of all, The King Cobra.
This king was resting in its burrow, I had to shoot multiple snaps with varying focal lengths and in-built flash on to get this shot.
These are probably only the snakes that create nests... or probably I might be wrong :)
Snakes do not have eyelids so you can see the eye as a white patch as pupil is completely dilated in dark.
