Such a terrific image Ken! Neither have I seen a snail quite this close....a wonderful composition of rich color. So interesting, too, to see something inside that shell! Big congrats to you!

Great shot, Ken, which is very colorful & an excellent macro. Congratulations on this nicely composed image!

Thanks to all-you have made my day brighter. FYI: I noticed the snails on a bush alongside a nature trail. Many similar bushes, but there were about a dozen on the one bush only. An hour later they had disappeared. Quite small, most smaller than one half inch. I wonder if anyone can identify it?

Nice to see your name here again, Ken. Excellent shot! Did you need a really fast shutter speed? ;-) Congrats on this latest POTD.
