This was taken with an old Pentax close up bellows with Pentax 50mm lens attached to my digital D90. I brought a broken plastic planter filled with potting compost indoors. Lighting was a couple of 50 watt halogen lights which I had to move into place shortly before shooting to keep the snail cool. Even then it moved more quickly than I could focus the bellows. There is a speck of soil on the snail's back which I toyed with removing on Photoshop but I think it adds interest (or maybe not). If my Tyre'd Tiger of Friday has the Ahhhh factor for many this has the urrgh factor. I think t snails are fascinating creatures but I don't like eating my tomatoes.
