[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Refer my previous post: This handsome Indian Cobra (Naja naja) was helplessly looking for someone to allow it pass quietly through the famous Panchgani plateau. However, trapped in a water pool at Panchgani Table-top; beaten by thorn sticks by few spectators, it was totally exhausted & desperate for any assistance cum mercy for survival. I could see its lacerated skin. I felt like helping it but was equally scared knowing the nature of its bite.The photograph shows frantic snake & your attention for its endurance.

I really like this composition, looking eye-level right at the snake. I am sorry to learn of its fate. I hope someone with the right safety equipment was able to move it to a more suitable location. I made a few adjustments in workshop, to make it a little brighter and sharper. I hope you don't mind.

Hello Subhash !
Sas story you tell us, poor snake, I hope somebody could help him without putting himself in danger... But the picture, at least, is wonderful, I love the pose of the snake, the eye-contact, the way he is lifting his head. Great picture, very well done !
