Kaouthia by Culpeo-Fox Kaouthia by Culpeo-Fox
Eye to eye and head to head,
(Keep the measure, Nag.)
This shall end when one is dead;
(At thy pleasure, Nag.)
Turn for turn and twist for twist-
(Run and hide thee, Nag.)
Hah! The hooded Death has missed!
(Woe betide thee, Nag!)




Monocled Cobra, Thailand.

Wow what beautiful contrast!  This is a marvelous photo, this is.  I particularly love that this is a composition involving a snake that we don't usually see.  Great work!

Heh check the camera data on the right side of the page. Most photo's usually have this info on the page. was at 300mm so he/she was still a fair distance away when the shot was taken I'm going to assume. Hope it helps in the future :D

Cool view. The poem sounds really familiar. I guess it's the name "Nag" that's doing that. I rather liked Rikki-Tikki Tavi.
