Shortly after the amazingly-fast coiling seen in my prior images, the two snakes separated.  One slithered off into the brush, while the other started paying just a bit too much attnetion to me and my colleagues for my tastes.  So, we decided to part ways amicably; I even got a nice rattle as the snake slithered away.
