An Hour With the Adders!

Had a good day with the adders this morning. Found 5 in total and all of them were females ranging from a tiny juvenile to a fully grown lady!
I was bitten by some nasties and got bramble scars all over my legs, but it was my own fault for lying in them while wearing shorts!

The tiny one. Around 9 inches long and a feisty girl. She wasn't too bothered and was quite inquisitive.

And here is mum basking just around the corner.

Same female except this time uncoiled and stretched out!

Another female under a gorse bush. I don't push to get too close to the larger adders as they are more timid than the little ones and it would only disturb them. Anyway, it's nice to see them in their natural habitat.
