It's a snake this time- another juvenile of the Banded Racer, a common snake of rural and sub-urban areas in India. This one was spotted by me as I heading to the back of my house. I saw that something seemed to be moving across the gravel and when I looked, there it was, a small snake that seemed really familiar. It immediately slithered into a pile of stacked brick-tiles.
I had photographed another juvenile Banded Racer in my visit to India about a year and a half ago. So I wasn't too excited upon seeing this fellow. However, I did, ensure I took a few shots, although most of them turned out quite dull. Here's one after a quick retouch. The snake's slithering along the side of the wall.
I released the snake soon after.
