Snails are good!

Snail garden moss bench 5.jpg

One of the times as I was wondering around the garden looking for something to shoot... (really.. anything will do..) I saw the snail.
And he was shiny and slimy.
And it was perfect!

And so I picked it up and with my own bare hands* I put it on a little bench that was rotting (and was also perfect) and covered in moss.
I did not have to clean the moss (@fraenk). As it was clean.
And it was good!

And I shot and I watched and he was crawling and I admired the little creature with joy.
Cause (take a wild guess).. it was good.

And then I put it back to where he belonged with my bare hands once more. And he crawled happily to the shadow of the bushes. And he was happy. And so was I.

But the day was far from ending and so I looked around. And lo and behold I saw more creatures whipping at me. From the tree bark nearby, to the edge of a broken wood.

Even the smallest ones were out and about. The rain was good and slimy texture was irresistible.

I've never heard of it, I just checked on google about "giant african snail". If there are two giant african snails in my house, I seem to be always slipping.

These days, snails often eat plants in the vegetable bed at night. Very sad what to do. No any plants Seedlings in the morning.

So, first you took the snail for some launch, then you had photo session with it, the others heard and they hurried to get there ASAP in order not to miss a chance being exposed worldwide. :P

Oh those snails, hidden little posers!

And I thought that you lay down on the ground for shooting :-)
The photo is just super!
