I found the snail in the lawn ( in Rhode Island)--moved it to the deck, poured some water over it--LOL--sort of like the spray bottle on flowers-- ......

Then, I noticed the reflection............

Geoff said you'd found a snail and thrown water over it! I had an instant picture of the poor thing coughing and spluttering! Glad it wasn't so! Don't think we get that colour over here. Lovely shot, nice details and good reflection.
