  1. 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.

  2. Awesome macro, Mike. Just look at those patterns, quite a beauty. I love the perspective too.
