Slug & Snails

While preparing our backyard for the summer (uncovering chairs, sweeping up, etc.), my husband kept finding cute little critters. Every time he found one, he would call me into the backyard and I would force the poor little creature to pose for me before I relocated it to my garden.  So here are just a couple that we found.

A slug:

I know some people think that slugs are ugly, but look at this cute little face.

And some snails:

He refused to turn around and say cheese for me.

This poor little guy's shell was cracked.

But he still seemed content to be munching on some mulched up (is that even a word?) leaves.

Nom Nom.

And this week I am joining Hop Along Friday (3 days late. Ooops.)


  1. how did you manage to make slugs and snails look cute?! The little antennas slay me. The slug looks just like a teeny tiny snake. Great shots.

  2. Lovely snail macros, you made the snail look really lovely.

  3. I normally don't say snails are cute - but I like these and they do look kind of cute!

  4. I really like the 4th one! I think these snails are cute...the slugs, not so much. ;)

  5. These are so cool. The DOF in the last one is insane.

  6. These are awesome photos, Barbara. So much detail and crisp focus. Love them!

  7. These are great!! I love the texture shot on the second. The third and fourth ones are my favorite! That snail looks cute :)

  8. I didn't think it was possible to make a snail look pretty, but you did it! These are great!

  9. Wow Barbara! Those are awesome. I've never seen a snail that close before, they are fascinating!

  10. These are so cool! I love the texture on the slug.
