Midnight feast…

I took this at midnight last night when I should have been gone to bed ! I made the mistake of turning on the outside light at the back door to see if it was still raining, it had just stopped but I spotted this snail on my favourite dill plant just beside the back door.

The snail was quite high up, at about 3 1/2 metres, so was hard to miss and it appeared to be feasting on the remainder of the almost-dead flowers which is what it’s doing here; just about to munch away

I couldn’t resist taking a few photos and doing a bit of editing this morning.  The snail was poorly lit but from both in front and behind hence the “glow”  I converted to sepia just because I liked the effect.

I really should learn to say no to photo opportunities sometimes!

  1. How fun to explore what you can do with little light now in photography! Snails are good reminders of keeping life simple: gastropod = walking stomach. Take it slow. Energy in/out is built in balance into living things. Nice to consider in the middle of the night when you can’t seem to re-set.
