This little creature measures about 1cm long.
I was walking in Robinswood country park,with the intent of taking more macro shots and found this under some dead tree bark.
It is surprising just how fast these terribly slow creatures move when trying to manual focus. Just another challenge I suppose.

I cropped it in Adobe raw first and then tweaked it a little in Photoshop CS3 before adding a small amount of sharpening. That is not cheating is it?

Glad of any comments and critique and thanks for looking once again.

What an unusual shape - almost like a sea snail! Well captured (re: CS3, enhancement is never cheating!).

Takes me back a few years when as a lad pulling bark from trees to see what I could find I came across two similar snails I had never seen before.No camera in those days,but I found out there were a very large number of different British snails to be found.I did not end up a Bellamy but have always been interested in natural history.As they say well spotted and captured.
Regards Robert.
