[chuck] in Danau Sentarum, Other, Reticulated python, snake

Still working through that box of photos from Indonesia. Really have no idea about the context of this image. I know it was taken at Danau Sentarum (see Danau Sentarum) during the dry season because the house poles are visible in the background. And I know the man in the foreground has a large reticulated python (Python reticulatus) around his neck. And I notice that I didn't take a close-up of this. [NOTE: Maybe I've repressed the memory of this encounter because of my discomfort with snakes].
