Spotted this snail at lunchtime in amongst some plants in the garden, think he was after a quick bite!

Oh my...what a satisfying macro. I like how it's so natural and untouched. Beautiful shell!

He probably went back to his office afterwards and went: "Hey guys, saw this human while I out to lunch today. I think she was out for a quick bite. Suddenly there was this large circular glass in my face..."

By the way, Jenny, I love how you put 'slime' under Tags...ha!ha!ha! Snail probably wouldn't have appreciated that, though Smile

I should have looked at this one a long time ago, very nice macro work and you have used dof superbly. Deserves far more hits than it has had to date.

Very natural tones to this, a really nice example of it in it's natural surroundings.
