[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was in love with the golden speckles in the eyes.This is a malabar Pit Viper, endemic to the western ghats of India. It is poisonous, pit vipers hunt by seeking heat trails picked up by specialized pits on their snout.This photograph is taken in a controlled situation.The photograph has been cropped by about 25%. Last but not the least i must give credit for this photograph as with most of my snake photographs to my friend Dr. Leon Pereira , we always shoot snakes in coordination.

I dont have the words to describe this one Badar. It just shows your talent and capability that you could present a vicious beast in such a beautiful manner. TFS.
