Snake In The Grass

Spotted a male last weekend on a walk around the estate (not ours, we just live within it), but didn't manage to grab a shot.

So went back a couple of times this week (I was going to try again today, but it's raining, so no basking to be done).

Didn't see the male again, but saw this female just a few yards from the male's spot.

She's a shy girl, and refused to show her face (which is why I wanted to keep trying), so this one of her coils is going to have to do.

She's a young adder, only a couple of feet long (they get to just under 3ft max, so they're not big snakes).

I do own a macro lens, but no way was I going to get that close! So this is taken on an 18-200mm zoom, cropped and tweaked using Luminar (I prefer the workflow of Lightroom, but refuse to subscribe)!

Snakes are amazing :) Great shot. Head would've been nice, but I forgive her for not wanting her photo taken :)
