Mother Nature is the artist. I just collect the memories…

More Snakes and Flowers

Went for a cruise with my buddy John last night.  He is a great photographer, and so we always go a bit early, in order to hopefully catch some sunset and flower shots.  So I managed to get a few nice flower shots before the snakes came out:

But as the sun went down, and the air cooled off…the snakes came out to play:
