The First Breath LIfe! - The most beautiful thing on this earth. There can't be a better moment to witness it. This beautiful trinket snake (Coelognathus helena) baby emerging out of its egg kind of gave me a new life. Felt like a father to see this baby being born. Although it was more than 3 hours that I waited motion less in front of this lovely baby, it seemed like nothing to me, it just went like a second.

  3. @fchristant: This was shot in Bangalore. The basement of the apartment where i lived two years back. Found the eggs of Trinket snake accidentally and waited for it to hatch. Inspected it everyday until they hatched one by one. So waited to get this shot till they hatched. It took around 3 days for all the eggs to hatch and the babies were all happy into the wild.
