Walking on the shores of Achensee, a lake located about 40 km north from Innsbruck-Tyrol, I met this cute snail which was enjoying the refreshment brought by a storm that had struck the area during the night. A lovely subject...

Hi Samuele!
Nice shot. I'm afraid of snails but your looks nice ;-)

Samuele, what a nice picture.

The nice part is that the main subject would not run away fastly.

Excellent pov and sharpness.

Hello Samuele!
Personal assessment of the photo: great. A little over-exposed.
Good visual impact.
Aptness of the photo for the site: excellent.
Personal assessment of the note: good.
Thank you very much for sharing.

Samuele, Good clear macro with great details and colors. A bit OE as mentioned..I might've composed with the subject off center more also..I like the environment here with the snail passing over this dead wood laden with fungi..Well done.

I like this shot. It shows off all the details in the snail's shell and body.
The grass in the foreground is distracting, though and could be removed easily.

Hi Samuele,

This is a real snowwhite beauty!
Nice sharp picture with good details.
Maybe next time the subject not centered?

What a strnge snail!
I never saw one white!
Great job!

I love this view of the snail, anything white is hard to photograph. I love the ruffly frills on his side, and the details on his body and shell, well done.

Very unusual snail. Wonderful macro shot! Looks almost alien.
