These tiny garden snails have climbed on top of each other to make this incredible little tower. About five minutes later it fell over !!!!

On the shores of Lake Constance, some artists make "pebble sculpures" towering one pebble on top of the other, without using any glue to stabilize it. And the sculptures keep as long as... a wind comes up, or some rowdies... or... well, this seems to be the same kind of art... but I have the feeling, they use some glue... Smile
Well seen,
Johanna

Like Johanna I thought of pebble sculptures.

This reminded me of when we were kids. My brothers and sisters all used to jump one on top of the other making a human tower. Shouted 'piley on' at the same time. GrinGrinGrin
Anyway very good capture. Moira

These little perishers eat my garden to pieces and I'm
afraid I bait them. This is something different with a
capture though. Nicely taken and published…
