Adders

A sure sign that spring is not far off is the emergence of the first male Adders. These two – my first sightings of the year – were shot at just before noon today, when it was such a glorious day here on the North Norfolk coast that they could bask is warming sunshine and begin their wait for the first females to show.

  1. Lovely shots. They apparently all have different markings so that they can be identified if you watch them frequently.
