[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
this is a viper snake (size: 40-45cm). the photo was taken in eastern Stara Planina, altitude about 500m, time 9:00-10:00am. the snake was basking in the sun. i just avoided a trample before i could see it :)
NOTE: the picture is scanned, hence some quality was lost

Welcome to TN Ivan, you did well to spot the snake and not tread on it! Perhaps if you had trampled it you may have had a nasty bite. I see the photo is scanned so I can't comment on what quality the original was, this is quite noisy and we can't see much of the snake. I realise that these are hard to capture so well done there.

Hi Ivan,

this is Vipera ammodytes.
