visited the same site this afternoon for possibly the last time this year. saw a few baby common lizards before spotting this female

she turned out to be extremely obliging, letting me get closer and closer until i was literally inches away. she even waited patiently while i removed some sticks and grass from right in front of her that were obstructing my view.

 

turned out to be the most engaging and captivating experience with an adder i have had so far. and i managed to get some half decent pics for a change because she allowed me to get so close (although the lens needs a clean).

Was out on a heath (East Devon) from 11am today. Lovely day. Saw two female adders mosaic basking (very hard to spot) and a couple of young lizards. Not had a frost down here yet.

Great pics Tim; always like to see photos of adders taken in situ - shows they've been more comfortable with the experience (plus fieldcraft, stalking skills etc)

Cheers

Will
