The Zigzag love dance of rat snakes

This was on a trip to Auroville, Pondicherry. The place where I stayed was in the middle of a thick forest. One evening on my way back I witnessed this amazing mating of rat snakes. They were at least 4 meters long.

About shabnamphoto

I'm a graphic artist with a passion for photography. I like to tell a story with my pictures. Sometimes a picture may speak on its own and at other times it may need an explanation. I'm intrigued by the ordinariness of life and enjoy documenting my life in the light and shadow of what surrounds me. Be it people, landscape, flowers, architecture or birds, the camera helps me see what I wouldn't with my naked eye.

  1. these are amazing! reminds me of a Lawrence quote – “The world of men is dreaming, it has gone mad in its sleep, and a snake is strangling it, but it can’t wake up”
