Unbelievable - the size of a hand! Scary. I have never heard of anything so strange. I think I'll have nightmares after that description. Beautiful shot - nice detail and texture. Very pretty for a snail.

Wonderful shot. Well done. You have represented this little guy very well. DOF is perfect, and sharpness is excellent. Good on you mate.
So you got to see the snails Sue! Excellent find here. I know nothing about these, so your notes are very interesting.
Good photo, details are nice and sharp, and I like the greenery he is crawling on. What is it, do you know? How big was this fella?

Great shot of this giant snail, a new one for me to behold. I like the POV and composition, but would have tried to do something with the shaddow...maybe fill-flash. Anyway TFS.

It is a nice composition and I like the use of shadows to hide the one side of the snail. You might consider diffusing the light source a bit as it left hot spots in the capture. It's a minor nit though.

Very clear and sharp view of this creature. The colors work very well to make every detail stand out. Interesting note as well.
