snail trail

how long must it take for a snail to make progress like this, i wonder as i walk. seeing the snail reminds me that i have a herculean task ahead of me this coming year. i'm thinking i should make this photo into a "slow and steady" type inspirational poster and hang it over my desk! i can learn from this determined snail!

Miles to go before I sleep.

What kind of camera do you use, that you get such crisp up close shots? These are beautiful. I wonder what made it turn.

Awesome! Thanks for sharing your great talent. Your photos moved me to write a post about it over at FindingTheInspiring.blogspot.com.

If you do, I would buy a copy too for Gloriana! You know how we love to make our Snail Hotel every winter. We've never gotten a photo this good as we follow the trails together. She will love this post.

Herculean task? Sounds like I missed a previous post. Sometimes I think humans evolved to think too much. Right now, they all flock back to the beaches to sit and watch the waves and try not to think at all.

I don't think I've ever seen a snail in its shell or an actual trail like that. Amazing shots! Yes, make the poster! Hope it has been a great week of R&R for you!
