I improvised a safe photo studio in my garden to take pictures of this snake that I had caught in my neighbour’s garden. The puff adder is a very dangerous snake as it relies on camouflage and does not slither away when you get close to it. I got as close as I dared before taking several head shots of it. The snake was released in lake Nakuru National Park with the permission of the Kenya Wildlife Service.
