Amazing specimen, the beautiful pictures as you have taken with the 15mm how close were you? I've seen vipers, maybe it will be the objective effect, but ever so big. However it is a common viper Aspis ?.
I thank you if I deluciderai, while I salute fabrizio

Hello Fabrizio. Yes, magnificent specimen. And as you say it is Vipera aspis (atra, although not everyone recognizes this subspecies). These vipers that I find in the mountains (the Alps of Piedmont and VDA) are not very large, generally the maximum length is about 60 cm.
With the 15 mm I approach much to the subject, in this case would say about 25-30 cm.
Regards, Mark

These snakes give horrible feelings but have a structure and colors are gorgeous

I'm glad you said that Marco n. As for the "horrible feelings", I believe it is only the consequence of a cultural attitude. I believe that the snakes (especially poisonous ones) rather convey a sense of fascination, as do many formidable predators (eg. Cats, birds of prey).

With the 15 mm I approach a lot to the subject, in this case I would say about 25-30 cm.
Is not it dangerous to photograph at this distance since the speed of the viper? I hope at least you put a pair of sturdy gloves.

Gav, sturdy gloves use them to catch them. Sometimes use of less bulky gloves also for shooting (with the most nervous individuals).

Well ... congratulations for the audacity. Surely as you say the "disgust" for these animals is more a cultural factor; fans disgusted me and attract curiosity at the same time; seeing your gallery can not say enough for how you have them taken and emphasized. Deserving.

Bye Bye.

I inspire fear, but I'd be the author of shots so (I said I would love ... :-D). Even with all the attention necessary, comi you can get so close without them escaping or worse you attack ..

Thank you Mauro and Pasquale Lucio.
Normally snakes react to the capture by implementing various defensive behaviors (of course we represent for them extremely dangerous predators!). With a little 'patience, however, can "calm" and photograph them at close range without them escaping or react with a bite. Of course with the poisonous we must be cautious, especially with the most dangerous species.
Thanks again for your comments and for the curiosity of these animals which are the subject of so many prejudices.

Fantastic !!! : -o very good because you can resume their habitat, very important peculiarity. Now I'm asking you a technical question. Is the staining given by the habitat where the reptile or the species of the animal lives? I saw high altitude vats at about 3000 mt on the banks of alpine lakes or streams. Incredible the adaptability of these animals. Bye gios fwink:

Thanks again, Gios. Then, the staining is very variable in vipers (as in general in reptiles), even within the same species and population. For example, You are in melancholic berus in Trentino, alongside individuals with gray or brown coloring. The Vipera aspis "atra" that we find in the western Alps is extremely variable. Many of the vipers you see in this gallery have been found in the same place, and as you see are very different!
Bye bye ;-)
