Abstract Snail art.....

By ColleenA
Good morning......
And now for something completely different to my normal photography. While out with my new micro lens (day 1) I was busy photographing dead seed heads and spotted this very tiny snail sitting on a dead agapanthus ( the size of a small raisin), no manipulations done, straight from the camera and framed. I am quite pleased with the resultGrinGrin
Have a nice Friday, we have had thick fog for the last 12 hours so more than tired of hearing 3 fog horns. We are meant to have a 23 deg sunny day today today, I wait in eager anticipation...

Well there's an expression I never thought to read 'abstract snail art'......

I really like this one, its just that bit different and the dof makes it perfect. Great shot.

Still windy and cold here for the time of year but at least the Sun is out at the moment.
