Namibia Namib Desert. Touring through this desolated vast arid area I came across this Namib Desert Viper. His camouflaged in the sand was faultless and I lost sight of him more than once. But he was 100% aware of my activity and movement. My fear for snakes almost got the better of me and I realized to photograph him I will have to be much closer. I sailed on my tummy and took this one photo...Nikon D3s and 105 Nikor Lens
