More Snakes

Well this time i had some luck on my side , out in search of Adders again i found a dead mouse , it  had not been dead long and was right by where i had seen Adders sun bathing. After setting up and getting comfortable i waited to see if anything was going to happen,I could see Adders moving around in the area near me and as i was lying in the heather i kept an eye on anything moving close to me !

After a couple of hours i saw movement in the heather close to where the mouse was lay , i then made out the head of a good sized Adder , head up and tongue flickering moving slowly towards me quartering the area , obviously homing in on the mouse , How the mouse had died i had no idea , perhaps a victim of this snake ?

Adders Again

Having tried over the past few weeks to successfully capture a decent image of the Adders living near to me , yesterday payed off , with one staying put long enough for me to get some time photographing these difficult to see reptiles , i say difficult to see but it seems when you do find one you then find more – as was the case with this one when after it departed the scene i found another three. However they were not so obliging as they didn’t hang around long.
