A scene reminiscent of some work places – everyone trying to climb to the top!

Seems these snails felt the need to climb high onto an old fence post between Carpenters Rocks and Blackfellows Caves in the Limestone Coast region of South Australia.

This is a common sight at this time of the year where common paddock snails congregate on anything off the ground…

Canon 400D, 18-55 lens with CIR Polariser.

    Great work Stevo, well spotted and captured. I have never heard of / seen this before. I wonder why they do it?

  • Not sure Simon, they tend to do this three or four times a year…
