…heh… i waited FOREVER for this tiny little snail to make it’s way into the little burst of filtered light on the native cruxifix orchids….

….lying in bed that night, it dawned on me that i could have just picked the orchid and placed it in the light!!!!

…the speed of the snail is often times faster than my speed of thought!!!
