    Sachin,

    It is a green vine snake as mentioned by Bibhav. Good find.

    It is difficult to focus on the head especially when the head is so small. Your AF may tend to hunt in this situation. If the subject is still then better to use manual focus.

    You can remove a bit of saturation. You can crop a bit from the left as the empty space in the left does not add to the image. It would have been better if you would have taken an image from the side. You can do some sharpening during post processing.

    Normally, you find this snake on a tree. What was it doing on the ground.

    Sachin,
    I agree. One should always be ready with the camera. At times I have found a tiger while coming out of the forest gate, when my camera is already packed.

    Recently, I had packed my bags and then saw the Leopard in Nagarhole. So morale of the story is always be prepared.
