The Magical Kingdom of Snails by 

Snails….would make a good competition…

Tiny snail who sleeps in lilies and grazes along the leaves in Southern California.
Snails don’t seem that slow when viewed through a lens. Amazingly agile, stretching across large spaces, often dragging the shell behind. The eyes are constantly moving and wonderful to “see”
The colors in the snail’s world are awesome…especially the light filtered through the flower petals.
