    Erm .... :scratch: .... so Mr Snail is on YOUR OWN one hand?
    And you took the photos --- with the only other hand you have?
    How!?!?

    Anyhow!

    Nice ones.
    I particularly like the last, the "Living on the Edge" --- it cannot be the amount of background colour included in that one, now can it??? :scratch:

    Thanks again for the reply Corinna!

    Actually, it was my wife's hand....lol... and it was kind of funny because I was telling her the whole time "now, hold your hand really still while I try to capture some detail on this little bugger." So it was a bit of a challenge for her to keep her hand still while still getting some of that green in the background.

    And I know how much you like that color, so I'm glad you like it!! :D

    Thanks very much for your comments.

    I also love 4 - the details and the colors are amazing! I love how you can see it's someone's finger - not a typical place for snail LOL. Nice job!

    I agree - number 4 is the definite keeper out of that set. I think the snail itself looks the most interesting in the third shot, but the composition and texture of the fourth is what cinches it for me. Great shots!
