    I used to love snails as a kid, my Mum would despair every time she caught me at the bottom of the garden covered in them lol. I still think they’re pretty cute now πŸ™‚ xx

      Hah that’s funny so you had a snail costume but real? I don’t tend to touch then unless they are erm going to live elsewhere (coughs) they do tend to eat the plants which isn’t good x

    Great photos! I’ve tried to photograph snails but most the snails where I am seem to be nocturnal so I can rarely get good light for a photo. They are great subjects though since they don’t move fast enough to just end up a blur haha

      Hah yes true about the moving he actually was quite fast for a snail was probably my lenses freakong him out. The tricky bit for me was getting down low enough to get a good shot πŸ™‚ xx

        Your experience sounds very yucky! That is one big slug you had as a visitor.
        When I lived on the west coast of Canada, there were banana slugs, so called because they looked like slithering bananas!
        My husband woke up with one next to his pillow!

    When I was very little,I remember taking great joy in putting salt on them! (People don’t like them in their gardens).
    Did you ever eat one? I wonder what they taste like… πŸ™‚

      yes salt on slugs is good i dont remember that for snails, i prefer snails to slug. Slugs are urgh, make me feel sick. I think i ate a proper snail once ie the type that is meant to be cooked with garlic, they are kinda like rubber dosed in garlic not great in my minds eye and urgh well its the whole concept puts me off x

    I LOVE the snail pictures. In 4th grade…. in Germany……. I used to slip under the school yard fence during recess so I could look for snails in the woods. I still remember coming back into the school yard and seeing my 4th grade teacher, and my mother who was also a teacher there, watching me. Whoops.

        I still am intrigued by snails. We have them in Seattle but there are not a lot of them. What is most abundant here are slugs. And they definitely wreck havoc in the garden. They can be so small you can barely see them to around 4 inches! It is strange that I do not have the same feeling about them as I do for the snails.
