    Notice the missing bits of the fish's tail? That went missing when the snake had a 'tug-of-war' with a crow trying to snatch its dinner. For the 2 hours that I followed this snake that afternoon, it was fending of crows and other keelbacks to keep its dinner. At times, probably to emphasize that it was its fish, it would dive into deeper water, surface and dive again, churning the water. It was during one such moment that I took this picture. At the lake at Fort Amer, near Jaipur, India.

    What a dynamic image portraying nature in action. Great that you followed this scene unfolding and shared the snake's catch with all of us who can appreciate and relive this moment in the wild. -Jassen T.
