Yeah, I'm on my way. Just after I pick up my 12 gauge! Nice focus and crop. There sure were a lot of entries from San Diego...

Great macro. Those windows are hard to shoot through without reflection.

Heh! Works for those who like snakes; not so much for those who don't! Nice balance of the text color with the snake color.

I really like the concept. The snake's body has a mesmerizing quality of movement and strength. A bit more contrast and saturation might improve.
