Exposure not recorded

"A small area of heath at Studland in Dorset produced many good sightings of Adders on a warm sunny spring day. This included these two duelling males (left), raising their bodies above the ground to test each other's strength. I only had a few seconds to take this single shot before the fight was over and they both disappeared into the surrounding vegetation."
