Subject: Design and Pattern of the hood of an Indian Cobra( Naja Naja ). Like many snakes nature has adorned the Indian Cobra with beautiful colours and patterns. Here it is photographed at the instant when the rear part of the hood is raised and the neck flattened – the classic position for the Cobra when alarmed and giving a warning signal.
