Leopard

By KarenFB
I know slugs aren't everyone's cup of tea, but I was quite pleased to see this one and I thought I would share! Grin

This is a Leopard Slug. They are supposed to be quite common, but this is only the second time I have ever seen one (the last time was years ago BC (before camera)). Smile Isn't it pretty!!!

A couple of versions showing different views. The weather was so dark and murky I had to use flash!

Pretty might be stretching it a bit but it is kinda handsome. This is a fine, detailed and interesting capture. Well done!

They are beautifully marked, so much more interesting then the 'ordinary' ones.....................though the ones with the orange petticoats are quite pretty!

I have found them very difficult to capture good detail, I see you do not have the same problem Karen, a great set. - gary

I have flying slugs in my garden, and they always seem to fly into the waste ground behind my fence.....with a bit of helpTongue!
I have to admit that the markings are attractive, Karen, and you have lovely detail here.

You don't see these too often as they usually hide away in daytime they are unusually marked and as you said well... handsome?
good shot.
