Another shot of my Snake on Tarmac taken in my village of Backbarrow in the English Lake District. This was just after it had made it across the tarmac and had decided to curl up against the stone wall after which it disappeared into the hole in the wall.Judging by the colour,it’s a female. I hadn’t time to switch lenses so took this with the Sony 18-70 kit lens at 30mm.I was quite close and a tad nervous.(Sony Alpha 350 DSLR single RAW tonemapped in Photomatix) (Re-edit of a previously posted shot)
Vipera berus, the common European adder or common European viper, is a venomous viper species that is extremely widespread and can be found throughout most of Western Europe and all the way to Far East Asia. Known by a host of common names including Common adder and Common viper, adders have been the subject of much folklore in Britain and other European countries. They are not regarded as highly dangerous; the snake is not aggressive and usually only bites when alarmed or disturbed. Bites can be very painful, but are seldom fatal.Females are usually brownish in hue with dark-brown markings, the males are pure grey with black markings. The basal colour of males will often be a tad lighter than that of the females, making the black zigzag pattern stand out Source Wikipedia
