The area was near Belabela town in Limpopo province, South Africa
I was staying as the invited guest at the private game farm of a friend when we went on a morning game drive and the ranger suddenly stopped the vehicle because this drama was playing out in front of us on the track. One of the guests was snake-phobic and could not look at what was happening!
Sharpened slightly by a professional photographer friend. This was all he did as he was very envious that I had managed to capture this subject matter. No colour or contrast etc changes.
I was using a second hand Panasonic Lumix G2 which i had just bought with a 45-200 zoom lens, so this was one of the first pictures i took with this camera
