Ciao Claude,
un'altra delle tue bellissime e particolari macro, eccellente POV frontale e splendida composizione che esaltano la caratteristica di questa chiocciolina appiattita, ottima la definizione dei dettagli con una perfetta messa a fuoco selettiva, molto belli e luminosi i colori.

Bonsoir Claude!

Il savait certainement qu'il pouvait s'approcher sans risque. Savait-il aussi que la photo allait aussi bien réussir? Le point de vue est original, les couleurs sont superbes!

Hi Claude.
First of all I am impressed with wonderful colour palette of the picture. Red-yellow leaf is suitable for pictured creature excellently. I welcome your use of DOF, sharp FG and a head of the snail. Very cute portrait work. My kind regards and TFS.

Hi Claude,

A nice capture of this snail,with a rather sshallow dof,but sharrp on the head and eyes,,a pity that there is a brown spot in the BG which distracts a nit,but sometimes you cannont have it all in nature photography,

Hello Claude,

You have shown well snails head in this close-up. Eyes and skin can be well seen due to the DOF you have used. The colors of the leaf snail is sitting on are looking very nice.

Thank you for sharing,

An exquisitely beautiful and delicate land snail captured from a good, frontal POV Claude, the contrast of colours is so nice to behold my friend. You could shift the DOF a little backwards to enclose the shell, but actually it is a small matter...

Very nice picture. Good point of view. Excellent perspective. It's a wonderful shot.
Best wishes,

Salut Claude,
quelle élégance cet escargot. Et quelle composition, la lumière est bien étudiée.

Bien à toi,
