Snail on the gardenseat by Hans Bax


Available to buy on…

I was on the phone when I saw this snail crawling on our gardenseat. I took my camera and made some supermacro shots, the phone in my left, and the camera in my right hand.
This snail is beautiful to see, but a plague as well!
We have to many in our garden. They gnaw all our plants….
Gouda, Holland

Camera: Canon Powershot S3 IS, focussed on supermacro.

Thank you for making the effort to take a look at my photos. Your visit is very much appreciated!
Photography is my passion since my youth and I never go out without my camera.
I found red-bubble in Spring 2009 and I’m glad I did. It’s a very inspiring and fascinating place to be, in more ways than one.
A heartfelt thanks to you all for the many kind words and wonderful compliments you gave me. I look forward viewing your world and sharing mine.
Have a wonderful day! Take care!
