Tiny Traveller

For someone so small, he really had quite a turn of speed. Didn't even stop to smell the flowers!
How cute is this!!!!

@suzanne234 You guessed! I added a teleconverter to it as well. Felt quite sorry for that snail. I found him on some cow parsley seed heads, brought him and the seed head home and kept popping him on the gerbera ...

Nice catch if a strange place to find a snail :)

@suzanne234 Upgrade his accommodation?!?? More like kidnapped, held hostage and made to perform repetitive tasks!!! Where's the Geneva Convention for snails?

@peadar And the worse bit is I promised him the freedom of the garden but - he fell off and was so tiny I couldn't find him. So he only has the freedom of the conservatory ...

@fbailey I hope he's made of stern stuff. Goodness gracious, I'm lost for words... 😎

@peadar I think the negotiations took too long so nothing was agreed.

You are the only person who would bring a snail INTO your garden! I am busy flinging them over the fence while I can before someone moves in next door. It is a lovely photo!

Lovely close up!

Love the shot, but do hope you despatched the subject afterwards. Hate snails, ruin everything.

I think he is lovely, as is your photo!

Great shot of the snail on the beautiful flower. I have to say I found the above comments very entertaining too.

Well spotted and captured.

Well done on looking after the snail! They are part of the natural nutrient cycle and in turn provide a needed food source to birds and other predators. Really they're only a problem to sick or weak plants in an unnatural setting. :D

Also it's good to see the new lens in use! I like how the converter makes it 0mm!

He's so tiny - you can see through his shell!! Fabulous!

Beautiful shot!

You know, I thinkI i'd prefer it without the snail! Zoom right in on the snail and you'd have another shot!
