[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Near the trail at Eagle Creek, in the Columbia River Gorge, on a rock Julie spotted this snail. He just sat there on his rock posing for the photo.

The Snail is a gastropod, a soft-bodied type of mollusk that is basically a head with a flattened foot. The soft body is protected by a hard shell, which the snail retreats into when alarmed. These invertebrates (animals with no backbone) are found worldwide in the seas, in fresh water, and in moist areas on land.

This guy was about 1 inch long.

Very good shot Lori!
The POV amd composition are perect. Details are very good and the colours really great.
I think that the DOF is a bit too shalow, but the rest is very good.
Well done!

Nice composition, but the snail is a bit too dark and too centered IMO. I like the light.
Well done.

I love snails and this is a great shot. It's a shame the antanae are slightly oof.
A great capture, well done and thanks for posting.

Nice point of view with an interesting background but the snail is a little to dark.

A brilliant shot Lori. I especially like the low POV, and dark details in the snail and its home. Excellent composition, thank you for sharing it.
