Usually I pick up any snails that I find in my garden and I throw them over the fence to do their slimy business elsewhere.
But this particular snail was so precocious, I decided to capture his image on film and let him be. For my kindness he smiled for the camera. :)
If you have a minute, click on this picture, go to flickr and click on the tab above that says “all sizes.” You should see this photo in a much larger size. And it’s amazing. Look at the ridges, bumps and colors on the shell. Examine each little lump on his body. See how his antenna are the faintest translucent blue color. And can you see the individual drops of water on the stem that he’s sitting on??
