Went snail hunting in the garden to day. They always come out after the rain. This one was rushing [ if a snail can rush] , to get out of sight before it became lunch.Lindford, Hampshire, UK.Nikon D60, 70-300mm sigma lens.

We have a lot of Magpies around here and they would love to have it for lunch. Not this one though it ended up deep in the undergrowth after I got my shot. Thanks Bingo.
Must be a GIRL SNAIL, wonder if she’ll turn pink after eating her lunch here…LOL. Great MACRO and a favorite. Not the snail the image…Jules
‘Does my bum look big in this!’ yep it must be a girl snail. I had never seen a snail on this plant before I think she was lost. She has a new home now in the woods. Many thanks for your tips ,I showed them to dad and he was very interested. kindest regards mark.
I am so glad you managed to capture it before it “rushed off”! Beautiful image!!!
Did you hear the story about the Snail that got mugged by a Slug. After the assault was over the police arrived and asked the snail if he would recognise his attacker again. The snails reply was, " IT ALL HAPPEN SO FAST I DIDN’T GET A GOOD LOOK AT HIM" Sorry Robin I just had to tell someone that one. Many thanks for your kind words. Have a great weekend. Regards Mark.
