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.
