Great shot – any closer and you’d be cleaning slime off your lens for weeks.
I carry a chamois leather specifically for this purpose, Kenneth. 🙂
That is a very pretty snail. I used to keep them as pets many moons ago, and race them against each other – not that I was sad and lonely or anything …
A person needs plenty of spare time to officiate in snail racing. . . .
That’s how I wasted away my summer holidays.
How very – oozy. I feel like taking a bath, somehow… 🙂
A bath in snail slime will be very good for your skin, Melody. Snail slime is protein rich, I believe.
HA! I think I’ll pass, actually – although I seem to recall that the slime is indeed full of good things. Now, if you could prove it to be good for wrinkles, I might take you up on it! 😉
Proof . . . I have none! However, wrinkles are the very thing snail slime is supposed dissolve. 😉
Shall I order them by the dozen or hundred then?? hehe
Go into you garden, find a snail and rub its foot along a wrinkle. If the wrinkle disappears after a few applications, it will be the first beauty treatment that works. 😉
I’ve got you there – snails are tucked in for winter already. It’s been freezing every night and daytime temps today aren’t much above zero today. Does it work vicariously? If you do the rubbing, will I be the beneficiary??
I see you too!!!
