Tiny Tuesday

I had a another go at a macro shot this evening. Gail was in the garden and noticed that there was a snail near the top of some hedge in the garden. She was amazed that it had managed to climb nearly six foot. And only a little thing too.

I tried taking a shot of it hanging from a leaf, but it didn't look right. So I gently lifted him off the leaf and popped him down onto one of the bigger leaves of the bay tree, and then waited a few moments before he started to pop his head out of his shell. And there you go.

If you are wondering, I took the photo with the Olympus 12-50mm lens, set in the secret macro mode.
