Apologies for any snake-phobes out there! I loved the shape of this beautiful python and, of course, had to have a tweak or two!

Thanks so much for the comments and votes on my last upload - shame I still do not know what the plant is though!

Not a huge fan of snakes but this certainly does work beautifully. Sorry, I felt I let you down re that flowering plant but no idea of its ID!

Not too keen on snakes but I do like your shot of this one Carol, went back (before I read your comment ) to see if the plant had been identified, I still think your dad's your best bet!
