First adder 2014

Due to the current dog leash rule in place in Norway at the moment, I was out laying some scent trails with a roe deer hock the other week for Geordie when I had a close encounter with an adder. I had already set out the trail and one hour later was tracking it with Geordie, he was following the trail perfectly when all of a sudden in front of us I noticed this little guy laying out in the sun.

The adder was about 45-50cm long, we were very lucky that Geordie didn't get bit as due to the warm temperature the adder was very active and hissing.
