A super macro shot Bun, really detailed and colourful. You could have called this one "Beauty & the Beast" The little critter's looking a bit sluggish, have you been feeding him stale beer?!

That slug has a passion for your flower. Now you know that slugs can fly, not many people know that! A great picture, Bun, and I like the inclusion of the tendril and water droplets. The shine on the little beastie is nice, too.

Fran's right Bun, get the slugs some Carlsberg Special Brew or Tennants extra and let em drink themselves to death, although knowing what happens in your crazy garden your cats and Squirrel Nutcase will probably drink it, get tanked up and cause mayhem!

Superb capture.....Sprinkle lots of salt on the ground around your plant, Ole slimmy will get a bit of a shock if he crosses over it.....Smile

I'm not sure the plant would survive lots of salt!! You can get hedgehog friendly crystals that kill slugs and snails but still leave them edible - for those that do.........eat them!!

I love the flower you've caught and the rain drops add to the shot.
