Kempner, TX (near our pond)
I shot this Puff Adder moving in & around our water course. Plenty of toads now, their favorite food. Here the Adder has paused near a few bees as it made its way along. Not too happy with my presence, evidenced by the spread head. Puff Adder AKA Hissing Adder, Spreading Adder, Blow Viper, Hissing Sand Snake.
