A wild male Adder (Vipera berus) - this one still has the eye covering “brille” in place after newly sloughing it's skin, hence the opaque look of the eye. Taken on the South Downs, Sussex earlier this week.

Many thanks for your generous support of my last upload with special thanks to John (JohnoP) for his User Award - very much appreciated, John Smile

Wow, what a great pose to capture and I love the way the shallow DoF runs down his body as it traverses the frame.

What an interesting couple, him with his striking tongue looking up in the grass and here in here deadly beauty!
Please regard the award for both, they are equally good!
