When Sebastian Dörnemann and me started this trip we had big plans for finding many viperspecies, so Vipera ursinii, walser, aspis aspis, aspis "atra" and aspis francisciredi were high on our wishlist. The weather wasn't acting like we wanted so we had to change our plans a little bit and it turned out quite well. We missed some of our vipergoals, but saw a lot of stuff we didn't expected. The whole story of many ups and many downs, new dutch friends and many other species than shown here you can find on my website: https://www.niklas-wildlife.de/exkursio ... quad-2018/

I hope you enjoy the report, I think it is quite funny and interesting.
Species found : Anguis fragilis, Anguis veronensis, Chalcides striatus, Lacerta bilineata, Timon lepidus, Podarcis muralis (ssp. brongniardii & maculiventris), Psammodromus edwarsianus, Zootoca vivipara, Vipera aspis aspis, Vipera ursinii ursinii, Hierophis viridiflavus, Zamenis longissimus, Rhinechis scalaris
Coronella austriaca, Coronella girondica, Natrix maura, Natrix helvetica,Natrix tessellata,Trachemys spec., Salamandra salamandra, Rana temporaria (larvae), Bufo spinosus, Bufo bufo (not sure if that individual we found were still spinosus but it looked more like bufo), Hyla meridionalis, Pelophylax spec.,Pelodytes punctatus, Alytes obstetricans

A warranted lack of modesty ;) , as I indeed enjoyed it very much! I like your attempts at the more arty photography! Nice ursinii result also.
