photographing and learning about wildlife
Purple and maroon coloured cobra plants of 1 foot height plants were spotted. Camera lens cover given for scale.
I spotted many cobra plants in the shaded wet slopes of Kyongnosla Alpine Sanctuary of west Sikkim, in the month of June. Nearby sunny slopes had grass and rhododendron.
The photo was taken by myself in non-digital SLR not digital camera., then printed. Later I pasted the photo on a paper and scanned it to save it digitally. The two photos are of the same place from different angles. Later referenced: http://www.flowersofindia.net/catalog/sl...
