Ever since I first learned of the existence of adders and other wild reptiles in the UK, I’ve wanted to find one and see it in person
I’ve made a number of trips to various locations around the country where they’re supposed to be regularly spotted, and they’ve all turned out fruitless.

The images will be worth it!
When it comes to animals, however, it’s a whole different story.
