single snapshot

Snapshot: Popularly defined as a photograph that is shot spontaneously and quickly, most often without artistic or journalistic intent. Common snapshot subjects include events of everyday life.



A baby snail. I found this little guy in the fresh mint that I was about to wash for a dinner dish. They are considered one of the smallest and slowest moving creatures in the world. Or so its says on the internet :-) He wasn't too happy being exposed; he persistently moved toward the protection of the leaves as I attempted to take this photo. Afterwards I released him into the wilds of my "backyard", which literally consists of a few bushes just beyond the kitchen window.

  2. Hi Debi!
    This is a wonderful close up of a snail--just look at his translucent pink antennae!

    Our stories are similar in that we both left places we loved and moved to new places to love! I enjoyed looking through your blog and particularly your posts about the Colorado Springs area.

    Please visit back often!

  3. great photo. yes, snails are shy about the paparazzi. lovely creatures. If you ever get the chance find The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating. It's a memoir, of sorts.
