[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
On my Valais excursions:

Upon huge demand I mount another SNAIL picture on TN : - )
This is the 12 mm Zebra snail (Mollusca; Stylommatophora; Enidae; Zebrina (=Ena) detrita O.F. Müller 1774; Zebraschnecke). Since my excursion to Bratsch started in the rain I met some animals I don't normally encounter.

Zebra snails are widely distributed in continental Europe but not in the UK nor Scandinavia, not on most islands and not in Turkey. They occur only in South-exposed, dry meadows or steppes and are easily overlooked.

Hi Dietrich.
You have pictured a very attractive species. I have not met it in my places. Pictured scene is also attractive. Snail on a twig is looked perfectly. TFS and kind regards,

A lovely shot, Dietrich.
The shell and the snail within can be viewed perfectly from this lateral POV, that you've chosen so well.
Thanks much, my friend!

Lieber Dieter,
Zurück aus Deutschland..diese kleine Zebraschnecke hab ich noch nie gesehen, aber sie scheint im Wallis heimisch zu sein, wenn Du sie in Bratsch forografiert hast. Dieses Schneckenhaus ist von grosser Schönheit mit ganz subtiler Farbgebung und künstlerischem Muster. Sehr schönes Bild!
Herzlich grüsst
