Male Adder (Vipera berus)

By teocali
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

Beautiful capture from the day Sylvia - I really enjoyed watching them moving through the grass and fields…

Looks like you and Mike had a very fruitful session on the Downs. Nicely captured Sylvia.

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