|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Whilst out rock climbing we found this little snake basking in the sun on a warm rock at the top of the wall we were climbing.|
It was only six inches long and moved quite slowly, I assume it hadn't been there long and was still waiting to warm up properly.
Adders are obviously identified due to their distinctive zig-zag pattern down their backs. A warning to all that they are venomous. This one is a female, being more dull and brown than the male. Males are usually more striking with more pronounced black and white zig zags.
