Hi everybody!

I've been shooting some snailshots the last couple of days and will be posting them here. The season for snailing is just beginning here in sweden and I wanted to start a snailing thread for us all to share. So if you have any pictures of snails, please feel free to add in this thread.

1. "The long way home"


2. "Dead end"


3. "Hanging out"


4. No name


5. "The grass is always greener on the other side"


These are all with the 100/2.8 macro (org.). My first time snailing, but CC is always welcome when it comes to my pictures!

(Btw, I really hope this is the right place to post this. I did read the guidlines but were a bit confused.)

C'mon people, lets see some snailshots!!

Cheers,

Alve

I like #1 and #3. Years ago while my Mother was working as in a genetics lab, she studied 2 species of snails. We caught and catogoized tousands of them by the stripe pattern on the shell.

Well here is my one snail shot.

I call it "Along for the Ride"

Nice shots Alve! Sharp. #3 is my favorite because it looks like it's smiling back at the camera.

Well, the only snailshot I have is not from my 5D but from my Pentax P&S (but maybe nobody will notice ;)):

I don't think we have a 'Slugs & Snails' Themed View yet - so here are some marine molluscs to start things off.
