"Til death do us part"

I was in a field taking pictures of nature. It was in the Fall, when all the plants are withering away. This particular pair of flowers caught my eye because of how one is clinging to the other. To me this photo symbolizes life so accurately. The flower on the left is the old husband, and the one on the right is the old wife. This picture to me really says, “Til death do us part” The “husband” flower is holding his precious “bride” as she is getting older, weaker and closer to death. They are just about done with life, and they did it together!
