Roy Mangersnes - Snake eyes

Roy Mangersnes - Snake eyes

It is that time again; the birds are calling, the trees are turning green and the Adder is slithering along the rocks. Every time I get the opportunity to work with the Common Adder, Vipera berus, I get down low and try to get intimate with it. Eye perspective is always something I aim for when working with wildlife, but sometimes it is a bit more tricky. Do you see the nice eyelashes of this beautiful animal? I guess it must be a female.
