Another female Adder shot from the weekend. A bit of a tricky shot shot to get when shooting overhead, as you have to be aware that your legs are out of striking distance from the Adder.
Thanks for looking.

1/30th sec @f/16 iso 200 with tripod

Camera:Canon EOS 30D
Lens:Canon 50mm 1.8
Recording media:RAW (digital)

An excellent shot all round, especially at such close range.

I've never seen one of these in the wild, I like how you've managed to capture the whole of her. Full of lovely details and a good clear background. Good shot!

Superb shot. The lichen covered rocks are an excellent textural b/g for the snake. Great shot.

Hi Steve

A cracking shot IMHO - great looking female adder. I would have preferred to see a wee bit more of that super lichen covered rock - but lets face it was your first photographic encounter. No doubt you'll get better opportunities the next time and the time after that.

Best Regards

Thanks for the comments guys. Cheers Geoff, I do have a few more showing the lichen/rock but like you say...hopefully I can improve with a few more attempts.

Love all the detail, curves and shape here.....the textures are really something else - in both the adder and the rock! Fantastic work.
