Snail Pace

By TerryMcK  
On a hot, sunny day (and I'm not complaining) following little photogenic flying things around the nature reserve can be very tiring, not to mention frustrating. Snails are a different matter entirely - you can follow them around at a snail's pace & they stay put until you've taken as many pictures as you want.
I know nothing about snails, so I've no idea what breed this one is - I just liked the contrast between his/her soft subtle tones and the bold blue of a Portaloo.

Thank you for your support of my previous feature, "Reed Warbler." It didn't quite make RC status but I thought it deserved to do so...

When I take snail images I usually get burn out in the slimy areas, none of that in this great shot. - gary

Stands out rather well against that vivid blue and there are great details in the Snail itself. Think Snails and Slugs are about the only things thriving in my garden at the moment!
