snail orgy






pictures taken a month or so ago .. i was clearing out my herb garden to make a new veg patch, & came across a whole bunch of snails enjoying the cool dark shade under a pot ... needless to say, they didn't appreciate being placed in the sunshine & set about trying to find some shade to slither under .. i was more than happy & amused to watch as they clambered all over eachother ;)

more snail photos ... here

what i've done .. greyscaled one, selective desaturation on another, tweaked levels on the others

camera .. pentax optio 550

These are really funny. I like the way you have some in black and white and others in colour. They're all composed really well too. Nice work.

Oh yeah, thanks for visiting my blog!
