I haven’t seen a live snail since about this time last rainy season. Then a couple of nights ago, my baby found these on the driveway when he came home from work. Needless to say, I harassed the poor creatures and demanded some photos.

    LOL, the title sure caught my eye!! Very lovely capture.

  • Thanks Kay. I had to think about that one too… you’d be surprised how hard it is to think about a title for a snail… I considered ‘speedy’, but that’s too cliche… Lol..
    Thanks for your visit. I’m glad I gave you a chuckle. :o)
