I feel so guilty. All summer I have waged war on slugs and snails. These wonderful photos by Vadim Trunov have made me see the error of my ways.
This little snail looks at the sky, thinking, 'Will this rain Never stop?'
He trudges on, if snails can trudge. Whew! That was close. He was nearly struck by a raindrop!
In an effort to stay dry, he climbs up on a mushroom. It's a precarious perch and he nearly topples into the puddle.
Finally, our little snail finds shelter under a thick stem. Unfortunately, he has to share it with a rather silly grasshopper, still it's nice to be out of the rain.
If these charming photos haven't made a soft spot in your heart for snails, I don't know what will! OK, snails get a second chance in my garden. Slugs are another matter all together!
