Male Adder Breathing

I filmed this male adder earlier in the year. He was on the other side of a wire fence, but that didn't stop me from getting a close up

Watch his nostrils flare while he is breathing.


  1. It's really great post, Rob! I'm scared of snakes but must agree that they are beautiful.
    How did you manage to get so close?

  2. That is one of the best. Is it really taken while I was birdwatching below you?

  3. Thanks Joo,

    Just quiet and I moved very slowly to get quite close, then I zoomed in.

  4. Yep, he is the same one you photographed yawning Bob.
    Hope he is there again next year.
