Photographing Snakes in the Forest of Dean

Well the weather is terrible for photography, so here is a video from earlier in the year, hope you like?

This is how you photograph snakes, you lye in the grass next to them and without shaking, push the shutter!

As you can see, the snake is not being disturbed and as long as we are quiet and calm he will be fine and will stay still long enough to allow us to get our photographs. I do not advise anyone without experience to try this, as this snake was not the only one in the vicinity and its always the one you don't see that gets ya!

The guy in the video is my nephew and fellow photographer, Paul Skelton and the snake is a male adder.
