Hello friends, first time from me
in TN, here it is a snail photo !

1/320s f/5.6 ISO200 13.47mm (35mm eq:74mm).


Snail is a common name that is applied most often
to land snails, terrestrial pulmonate gastropod molluscs.

However, the common name "snail" is also applied to most
of the members of the molluscan class Gastropoda that
have a coiled shell that is large enough for the animal
to retract completely into. When the word "snail" is used
in this most general sense, it includes not just land snails but
also thousands of species of sea snails and freshwater snails.
Occasionally a few other molluscs that are not actually gastropods,
such as the Monoplacophora, which superficially resemble small
limpets, may also informally be referred to as "snails".

Snail-like animals that naturally lack a shell, or have only
an internal shell, are usually called slugs, and land snails
that have only a very small shell (that they cannot retract into)
are often called semi-slugs.

That is a razor sharp image of a Snail taken with fill flash, Asbed.
Nothing is left to imagination here.
Well done and TFS.

Hello Asbed,
Beautiful presentation of this snail. Nice to see this species. There are so many things in the world.......not just Bird, Bug, Beetle and Butterfly.
Good sharpness and DOF. Color looks natural too. Well placement.
Thanks for sharing,
