I know slugs aren't everyone's cup of tea, but I was quite pleased to see this one and I thought I would share! Grin

This is a Leopard Slug. They are supposed to be quite common, but this is only the second time I have ever seen one (the last time was years ago BC (before camera)). Smile Isn't it pretty!!!

A couple of versions showing different views. The weather was so dark and murky I had to use flash!

Pretty might be stretching it a bit but it is kinda handsome. This is a fine, detailed and interesting capture. Well done!

They are beautifully marked, so much more interesting then the 'ordinary' ones.....................though the ones with the orange petticoats are quite pretty!

I have found them very difficult to capture good detail, I see you do not have the same problem Karen, a great set. - gary

I have flying slugs in my garden, and they always seem to fly into the waste ground behind my fence.....with a bit of helpTongue!
I have to admit that the markings are attractive, Karen, and you have lovely detail here.
