On this fine October evening the snails gathered at the usual meeting place. After a night of fun and frivolity they paired off and went to their secret love nests; some happily engaged while others became those left behind feeling abandoned and alone.

This little story is created with the thinking that we all want to connect, to befriend, to end up with someone that could be a lasting relationship. And then there are others who just enjoy the one-night stand. This could be true in nature as well as our own lives, don’t you think?

Image captured in semi-closeup mode with my Nikon CP 8400 at a friends place in Oceanside, CA. I loved the contrast of the blooming fronds spiraling to the straight lines of the stem. And the snails gathered added a muted contrast as well.

3 image exposures to create a pseudo-HDR. Post processed Photoshop: used native filters, background blended using the Orton Effect and outside filters including Fractalius.

Is a snail an animal? Not really. A snail is any of numerous aquatic or terrestrial mollusks of the class Gastropoda, typically having a spirally coiled shell, broad retractile foot, and distinct head.
