speedy slow thing

i saw this snail on a wall as i walked to get my train at ten to 6 this morning. it was really zooming along and i got a bit freaked out that it was going to climb up the camera lense.
so i took as many shots as i could then ran to get my train. which itself was a quite a slow thing.
i’m quite impressed by the detail on a snail’s head. click the pic to inspect the big version.

  1. Superb picture Dave, but may I suggest it could have placed in a different category? I suggest “Biblical”. Why? Well, both snails and trains are referred to on the very first page of the Bible, Genesis 1:25. “And God made…..everything that creepeth upon the Earth….” (Sorry!)
