[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Adders are the only venomous snakes found in Britain, They use their venom to immobilise prey such as lizards, amphibians, nestlings and small mammals. After striking their prey, they leave the venom to take effect before following the victim’s scent to find the body. Although an adder’s venom poses little danger to a healthy adult human, the bite is very painful and requires urgent medical attention. Adders are the most northerly distributed snake and the only species found inside the Arctic circle.

Hello Andy,
I really like the low POV in this shot and the focus on the adders head is tac sharp. I have never seen an adder in the wild, but I have read about them. Beautiful colors and nicely composed shot. Was this shot taken in the wild?

Hello Andy - I am watching your posting picture first time here in TN. Very beautiful picture of this Adder. Excellent details; even scales are well visible. I like the way you have managed such attractive BG. Useful NOTE, thanks for sharing. Best wishes

Real beauty!Nice shot...RGDS
