Well after all the rain there were plenty of snails about.This ones shiny shell caught my eye,looked like it had been varnished!! This shot proved tricky trying to get every thing in focus,i did not quite manage that.I was using the standard lens,manual setting,hand held,f 5.00,1/100 sec,iso 400,taken in raw,cropped and edited with raw therapee.I can see the benefits of raw,its just finding the time to learn it!!Thanks for all your comments and votes,Dane.

As far as dof goes the snail is in the spotlight and is "spot on" !! The rain droplets add a lot of atmosphere to this snail trail's tale!
Well done!
