Courting adders

On Thursday I decided to go to see the adders after work as the weather had been bad all day but then the sun came out. When I arrived I saw that two, possibly three had paired up with a female. In the end I saw two definite adder couples, one single large female and two more single adders. One pair began copulating while I was there, so I took a few photos and then left them alone. In the third image you can see the tails locked and at that point I left. What a smashing evening!

  1. Mindblowing Pictures. Great Work and Great Efforts i must say. As an Photographer i can understand that how much important it is to capture moments like these specially in wildlife. You have to be patient and calm all the time in order to capture perfect picture.
