Yuk, Herman, that's huge Grin. I bet the Greeks wish they grew to that size over here, as snails are regularly enjoyed as a meal. Carol

Wow...nice milky white mantle! This looks like our garden snail but I don't think ours get to 5 inches!!

I see this snail's been kicking its can all over the place.

A good title

In answer to ColleenW question about who sung the song I think it was Queen, it's the start of 'We Will Rock You' I think. Anyway enough of that, these are great images although they would certainly make a mess of your flower beds. Well captured.

great images
25 Aug 2013 12:24PM
Dirty chappie! To be fair, don't suppose there's much you can do about it if you are a snail and you get dirty - except wait for the rain. Guess the snails in the UK are, by simple fact of their location, a lot cleaner!!!

Well Herman, not exactly Freddie Mercury but the scale does come through, you got really close to this giant, both images are well presented.

These are two rather extraordinary close-up, as they say, up close and personal, Herman. As a photo, I prefer V2. A very nice snail photo.

Hello Herman, i am none to keen on these creatures, but two good shots and you can certainly see how big these are in V2. I have never understood why the French eat the things lol
