Taken earlier this week in West Sussex...
Not my favourite of subjects by any means, but a superb capture. Carol
Quite a shot and not one I would have wanted to attempt - well done!
Superb photography of an amazing reptile love it, superb composition, detail and timing
Don't like snake's but an amazing photo.
I like handling constrictors, whch this is not. I think the adder is poisonous? Good portrait.
very well timed, great shot,
Stunning capture Mike and beautifully presented.
Pure brilliance Mike
Cracking Capture Mike, love the colours & comp
Fantastic shot, Mike.
Simply superb in every way, Mike - stunning close-up capture, timed to perfection to catch that flicking tongue.
The low point of view really allows one to fully appreciate the menacing beauty of this Little Killer. Superb clarity in the main subject, whilst the uncluttered backdrop allows one to enjoy this little fella even more without unnecessary clutter or distraction.
Many thanks for all your wonderful comments and support, very much appreciated
A big thank you to Sylvia, David, Richard and Chris for their User Awards, chuffed to bits...thank you muchly
Peter, you are correct, this is the UK's only poisonous snake. It's venom is of little danger to healthy adults but used to lethal effect on small mammals. It's effects can be somewhat uncomfortable to humans as I understand...!!!
A super capture Mike,so very well timed to get his tongue out,lovely detail & dof.
I have these visit my garden on a regular basis,I have to be careful though...my Jack Russell has a bit of a thing about chucking them around the grass....a dangerous hobby !!!
Fantastic image Mike with excellent detail and composition
All been said, fabulous capture.
fantastic colors and blurring
Excellent image Mike, (was this as found ? I was photographing Adders earlier in the week found none in open situations) Beautiful clarity.
I thought Pete might give this his accolade and very worthy too. Great work Mike and just goes to show the capabilities of that Pany in the right hands.
Really appreciate your dropping by to look, vote and comment
Thanks go to Janet, David, Terry and Kathryn for their valued User awards...feeling spoilt
Your Editors Choice was a pleasant surprise Pete - thank you
That dog of yours is living very dangerously Janet
Ron - I went out with a professional who was carrying out research work on the Adders - we found quite a few and this one was placed to get ID markings so members of the colony can be recorded and monitored. I wouldn't want to be messing around with these beautiful creatures on my own!!!
Just stunning Mike - fabulous photography.
Gets my small award.
Very special Mike, well worthy of all the awards recieved so far.
Brian and Clive, many thanks for your User Awards and comments - really appreciated
Cracking shot, i have never seen one on here before. Well deserves the awards
Well done Mike,nice to see this with a big sticker on it too.
Quote: That dog of yours is living very dangerously Janet
Tell me about it...she killed 4 last year,trouble was,I didn't even see her doing it !!!!!!!
Thanks for your comments
Janet - George, the guide I went out with was called into a neighbours whose cat had attacked an Adder - the cat went off to the vets in a bit of a sorry state - don't yet know if the badly mauled Adder survived...keeping my fingers crossed your dog doesn't end up the same way as that cat...!!!
Remarkably good wildlife image.

Sharp, direct, and striking! Adjectives that can be applied to both subject and capture.
Thank you Tom, both for your comments and User Award - very much appreciated
Great image I take it this US an arrange image as opposed to who you found the Adder.
You are correct Geoff - I was out with a guide who carries out research on this particular colony of Adders with the local wildlife trusts and universities.
