A morning with a Saw-scaled Viper!

I was out early in the morning yesterday for some trekking in the desert to look for some striped praying mantis.  It was a long drive to the deserts of Umm Al Quwain through foggy roads and after about an hour or so, me and my buddy Naeem, met up and reached the target area.  It was in a desert area near the industrial zone.  Not even 5 minutes from the time we started our trek in search of these mantises, we hit the jackpot!  Naeem found the saw-scaled viper sleeping under the shade of some rock debris!    We had a viper, which is nocturnal, to photograph in broad daylight!  Enjoy the photos!
