Thanks Mike , for giving them a name, I just called them the Garden snails!
The name I gave was wrong, Ann. Its name is Cepaea hortensis.
Beautiful macro (again), Mike.
Thank you, Vicki. 🙂
That’s a colorfully patterned garden snail. I saw something similiar (but duller in color) on Friday, but as it was on an alien invasive species I didn’t photograph it.
The species name of your snail and the fact that you’re documenting Hoo Wood reminds me of the children’s book Horton Hears a Who by Dr. Seuss. Now i know someone who hears and sees a Hoo.
I’m glad you found the snail of interest, Steve. The Hoo is an owl, you know! Hoo Wood is owl Wood.
Perhaps the hoo knew.
Now I know too.
Awesome macro, Mike. Just look at those patterns, quite a beauty. I love the perspective too.
Thank you very much, Gracie. 🙂
