NHF excursion 2008, part three

While a couple of the guys and I were busy with the first two stålorm, the others managed to find and catch a hoggorm, Vipera berus, which of course was the main thing we were all interested in seeing. So the three of us missed seeing that up close, which sucked. But towards the end of the hike we did come across another specimen, which was basking on a pile of dry branches and logs. Unfortunately we couldn't get close to it or catch it, because it was in the middle of the pile, which was huge and rickety. But I got some good pictures anyway. This one was the best:

Check out the shed skin in the foreground on this one.

Here is another shed skin, we saw several of these.
