Is that V. berus? I absolutely love all of the Vipera species. I will take a vacation over there just so I could get a picture of one someday. Post as many pics of them as you can take, I think they are the greatest little vipers!

Awesome Eddy! Thanks for sharing. That moth is spectacular. And the snake, well, no words could do those eyes justice.

most agilis here are found in the dunes along the coast. i however live about 150 kn land inward. this is what it looks like. (note the enourmous dutch mountains!)

They are found in similar habitat in s. Sweden aswell as other habitat
Old shooting ranges and railroad tracks etc are also used by them, esp. for laying their eggs

swedish male agilis:
