A young grass snake that hissed dramatically the whole time I took photos. Found in the Lea Valley Park, Hertfordshire.
This female adder was basking in scattered sunshine on a heath.
A very feisty grass snake about to dive into a heather bush on Thursley common in Surrey.
The first of our 'lucky four' smooth snakes that we found on various Dorset heaths. This one was basking right in the middle of the small trail we were on.
The second smooth snake (of four) that we were lucky enough to find on various heaths near Poole in Dorset. This one was on the move and I just got a couple of shots before it disappeared into dense heather.
