Thanks all.
Nigel, thanks mate, the reason for me getting better shots is that I have leared more about snake photography and I have got braver.
The adder and grass snake are protected under the wildlife and countryside act 1981, but it is OK to handle them as long as they are not harmed.
You can then manoeuvre them into a more suitable possition.
Ok with the grass snake, but I have been bitten by the adder twice, so I tend to photograph them where they are now. lol.

Superb shot, Robert! Terrible hard work to catch the tongue! Smile
I was able to hold an 80lb. Boa at Oasis Research, Marshalltown, IA, the year before last and was amazed at how affectionate they can be. Oasis is a place where they study what animals eat so they can produce food products that are healthier. They also provide vet and rehab care to animals that have been abused by zoos, or taken from people who should not keep exotic animals in their homes. I go once a year when invited and photograph and sometimes feed the animals that they are caring for. I like the big cats the best.
I love the composition of this shot, Great work! Smile Daenna
