Thank you everyone and thank you Peter for the HC - that's fair made my day Smile

I must admit the idea came when reading the comments on my picture yesterday of the two snails - I was thinking of snail wrangling when my brain suddenly went ping and here you are. I do wish you could control the blighters though - it totally refused to stay in place Smile

He was rewarded with a nice big lupin leaf for his efforts which I photographed him eating Smile

Alison, you have such a dry sense of humour!
Another successful shot in the series. My daughter thinks Woody is great too. His fan-club keeps growing. My kids now gather round to see his latest antics.

Absolutely great.

Thank you again everyone Smile

This may be rather more simple than my usual pics but boy was it a pain to do! Woody had to be stuck down to the 'floor' as the weight of the chair kept tipping him over - as it was the chair kept falling off his hand Smile

Metering was tricky and I must admit that it didn't come out quite as hoped for but I can live with that.

And of course Brian just wouldn't stand still - it was a case of taking as many pictures as quickly as possible while he was relatively near Woody - as you can see he got sick of the whole silly game and wandered off. He was the only one with any sense last night Smile

The things you create with your wooden men are just so original, imaginative and funny but above all so skillfully executed.

Thank you again everyone - I must get a bigger sheet of plastic so that I can play with the reflections some more.

Ah yes Angela - the snail just didn't want to know which was probably just as well as I would rather not have a slimed Woody Smile I'm very nice though and still rewarded him with a big lupin leaf which went down a treat!
