This isn't very good or educative picture, but it made me laught loud :-) So I posted it today just for friday, preweeeknd fun :-)

I think it is also suitable for Saner's Famous One Liners theme - probably most of us know well movie with Hasta la vista, Baby! one liner.

Why it is so funny for me? Because it is good start for humoresque. Look at this fly - it is totally flattened :-) The fly was sunbathing and then snail came rolling itself. It didn't notice fly and rolled over it and flattened it to the ground [or leaf ;-)]. Because it was very gentle snail, when it noticed it was really sorry about it. 'I'm very sorry, my little fly! I didn't want to flatten you!', 'Oh, don't worry my good snail, I'm fine! Now I can sunbath more effectively!'...etc. And story can go on :-)

Well spotted! Photos with stories are always nice. Good close-up.

Hi Greg,
Who would have ever thought you could get road kill created by a snail!!!! Usually when creatures get flattened out it is by a car or truck. Amazing detail in this one. I think your long winter is already starting to have an effect on you!

Hello Greg, thatīs a funny composition... a great moment... good colours....great sharpness...very well done.
Have a great weekend.

Great post Grzegorz, certainly brought a big smile to me just before the weekend :-)

What I like in some of your posts is that it is not only a photo but a history you are posting. This is a surprising one.
DOF is in the limit, but does not really matter this time :D
Thanks for making interesting a quite boring afternoon. Hope to post a new fungi tonight :)
