All this sodding rain. I feel so sorry for the tourists. They come expecting views and sunshine, and what they get is the Rock shrouded in cloud and mist. However within each cloud is a silver lining… well for me.
The creepy crawlies love the rain. Snails in particular. And as I am very eager to learn how to master this macro lens, I donned my raincoat and went out for a walk once the rain had calmed down a bit.
There were many, many snails. I love them. Not to eat. Just to look at. And because they are slow (except their eyes, those they move at rocket speed) they make for a great model. Unlike ants, who really don’t relax or take breaks from their busy days to pose for photos…
Once I got sick of being damp and rained on, I went home and saw this snail. Seriously, I have never ever seen a snail like this on land before!
