I found this lonely snail on our iris after a summer shower. Did you ever wonder how do they get there? It's pretty high for them, isn't it?

The word snail is a common name that can be used for almost all members of the molluscan class Gastropoda which have coiled shells in the adult stage. (Those snails which do not have a shell or only a very small shell are usually called slugs.)
Snails can be found in a wide range of different environments from ditches to deserts to the abyssal depths of the sea. The great majority of snail species are marine. Many others are terrestrial, and numerous kinds can be found in fresh water, and even brackish water. Many snails are herbivorous, though a few land species and many marine species are omnivores or predatory carnivores.

Hello Ileana,

Very beautiful composition. Good POV and focus. Wonderful capture of the flower and of the tiny snail. Very good light and great colours.
