6:47 am – a beautiful spring morning in May… Diemer woods were silently bathing in the early sunlight, the wild flowerborders of paths and streams loaded and sparkling with dewdrops … This little snail probably wasn’t aware of the grandeur of her décor… she just enjoyed the morning exercise ;)

Technical details

All photo’s made with Pentax K10D camera and
Tamron AF70-300mm Tele-macro1:2 lens – settings of course different for each pic. There was a time span of about 12 minutes between the first shot and the last one, so yes, I stood there for a while LOL

5 images brought together in a collage, using one of great storyboard-templates – Thank you!
