Ha ha ha would not want a handful of that lol. I don't blame you! good detail! and I only just found out there are quite a few different types of slug, even a tiger one with stripes, a black one and yellow, so there you go Diane could get a collection Mmmmm! I don't mind snails, like it, regards Leon.

A rather wonderful image. "I can't recall a slug being the centre of attention on ePZ, however as far a Slugs go this chap or chappess is rather photogenic?" GrinGrinGrinGrin

If I'd come across this I might have up-chucked. Your capture is so life-like, I cannot look at it for long. Just like Carol. What a woose, eh?

Super macro shot of a much unloved creature, but you have captured its lovely colours and textures very well here. I wrote a poem about a slug once - you can find it here -

Maybe you and I should be founder members of the SAS (Slug Appreciation Society).

Definitely hate them in the garden, but with this one I'll forgive what they do! Well seen and captured, Diane, with super detail. You have made a picture from the slimy creature. SmileSmile

A great image...
You might use a very soft flash with tisue over it to get a tad more colour and to fill in the darker areas...
I do like the water droplets in its back...

Very nice work...
Well done...
