I had being seeing other peoples photos of their first adders of spring on facebook and really wanted to find my own but wasn’t having any luck. After a couple of times searching I finally found this guy sunning himself on some rocks. It was still pretty chilly so he was quite relaxed and let me get fairly close. I started taking photos and noticed these ladybird type insects on its body. I saw one moving towards its head and hoped that it might eventually crawl onto its head but didn’t think it would! To my amazement it did just that and the snake did not seem to care one bit!!
