I saw a cute snail

I'm sure I'm probably in a minority, finding snails rather cute, but this one caught my eye yesterday morning when I went into the garden. It was such a tiny little thing and worthy of a photograph. Somebody pointed out that the shadow looks like a rude finger gesture, which I hadn't really thought of, but I suppose it could be that the snail is not impressed that I should try to take its picture. It's rather fun to take close ups of small creatures. You don't always appreciate the detail until you look at them in photographic form. Isn't the sheer variety of life forms quite fascinating? What animals have you enjoyed photographing?

My grand daughter loves snails. She is always picking them up and letting them crawl on her. It creeps me up a bit but it is cute to watch her with them. I like photographing my cats. I have hundreds, maybe even thousands of pictures of them. lol That snail picture you took is really cute. I will have to save a copy of it on my computer to show my grand daughter the next time she comes over.
Know what..when I first read the topic "I saw a cute snail" I decided from then on..my first comment line would be- You find snails cute? Same here..I like insects, I am even affectionate towards them! ^_^ And BTW, those shadow doesn't make me look like any rude finger gesture. Only when you look at snail, like a snail, then you'd see the snail's shadow..not any "gestures". :)

I find insects fascinating too. I love to photograph bees in particular. Also I enjoy taking photographs of spiders. I think there is so much interesting animal life around us. We tend to think we have to go to zoos to see the interesting creatures but they are everywhere if we just look.
