First herptile find for the season!

Posted by Miqe on March 19, 2009

 

I found my first ones of this season yeasterday.

When I go to work, I pass a little place where I have been thinking: “There might be an Adder there”. So, yesterday I walked there, it´s just 750 meters from work, to have a look.. Didn´t think that I was going to find anything, just wanted to check the place out..

After just a few minutes, I saw 2 V. berus basking, immediatley threwed myself on the ground with the camera.. :) Took a few pictures, and walked a little more. Only after 25 meters or so, I found another one.

A good day, in deed!

A couple of the pictures I took..

    Miqe,
    Congrats on your finds. I still haven’t found a snake outside of my house this season, but I have the same thoughts as you do when I drive past places. I always picture myself flipping and finding.

  3. Nice post, and really impressive pictures. The guys blend in so well I’m amazed you could get pictures that clear. Good work!

    Nice images, particularly the first one – good sharp focus on the eyes.

    Thanks all, for your warm words!

    It seems that winter struck Sweden again.. When I woke up this morning, the temperatures was – 10 degr. C..

    Hopefully, it will turn to the better at the weekend..
