I thought I'd amuse myself with a snail this evening - he/she was fairly obliging but totally refused the nice fresh spring of parsley I offered........

Thanks folks Smile

Yes Ken - anything is fair game around here as long as I can get it indoors and under some controlled lighting Smile

I think he/she can stay in the garden though - I've never tried eating snails and don't plan to start!

Oh just two eyes though apparently snails can only distinguish light and dark - the lower tentacles are for smell and touch....

Now if it wasn't for the fact that you've used a macro lens this could almost be you in dressing-up mode again. Smile (without the legs Grin).
