I had a photoshoot with a snail. I know this may sound strange, but I sort of became fascinated with this little guy when I dug him out of the grass bin.
Judging from the scrapes in his shell he must have gotten sucked into the lawnmower shavings, only to be discarded into the green bin. When I opened the bin to see how much room there was for more tree clippings, this little guy was on the top, and from the moment I picked him up he was out of his shell wriggling around instead of hiding in it. What a brave snail! He was also quite quick, so I snapped a few photos of him climbing on the windowsill.
Now that all the critters are out in full force in our backyard, maybe I’ll start a digital creepy crawly photo album here on Fridays.
