    I love how the snail is limned in light! And the ridged, angled teeth of the leaf are such a lovely contrast to the smooth softness of the snail.

    Until someone swoops down and grabs you up for a snack.

    A masterpiece alright! Everything about it is just perfect!.

    What I love about it the most is that it is a newborn snail, very frail and vulnerable yet very determined to make the journey that is called life.

    The luxury of moving slow in such an overly fast paced world. We could learn to stop and smell the roses from this little one! Great illumination from behind, gives detail so sweet!
