Well my little venture out up to Loughrigg Tarn last weekend proved to be a false start in terms of getting out with my camera more as I came down with covid later that day. Fortunately it's been nothing worse than a few aches and pains, and frustration at missing some misty mornings that I couldn't take advantage of. As the skies appear to be back top flat white stuff at the moment, here's one from this time last year up on Lingmoor Fell

Portrait of a Truong Son Pit Viper.
An absolutely spectacular adult male Truong Son Pit Viper found coiled in an ambush posture within an elevated, shallow rock cleft at a limestone cave entrance at dusk in karst rainforest within the magnificent Phong Nha-Ke Bang NP in the Quang Binh Province of central Vietnam.
This species was quite recently described. It is currently regarded as endemic to the karst rainforest incorporating the Annamite Mountain Range, an area notable for its overall high endemism and species diversity. It is an area recently subjected to intensive scientific scrutiny because of these attributes. For example, a collaboration between German and Vietnamese researchers culminated in 46 published papers dealing with the herpetofauna of Phong Nha - Ke Bang alone, from 2000-2009!
In line with so many species recorded from the Annamite region that are currently regarded as endemic for Vietnam, it's occurrence in similar habitats in neighbouring Laos cannot be excluded.
Taken with a Canon EOS 5D Mark IV DSLR coupled to a vintage Contax/Yashica mount 55mm/2.8 Yashica ML 1:2 macro lens from the 1970's. Shot hand-held with manual focus/settings @ f.11 with a TTL dual flash set up.

It's always a good idea to keep your eyes open, you never know what's about to hit you.
