Slow Worm - First of the Year

It’s the 5th May and today was the first time this year that I’ve seen a slow worm.  We had a warm period in March but things have been cooler since and the last few days have been quite cold again.  This one was trying to warm up and wasn’t very active so I took a few photos and left it in peace. 

(Slow works are legless lizards and not snakes and are quite harmless, unless you happen to be a small bug which they feed on.  This one was quite small being no more than 5mm across its body.)  

Gear, Nikon Z6 with 24-70mm lens at 70mm f/9 1/250s and ISO 800
