Ah, A Cool Shower

Will spotted this little bloke on our visit to San Juan Bautista Mission. We both shot several pictures of this snail. We have the same camera, Canon Rebel XTs. I used my good ole 35-105mm and he used his 60mm macro.

What a difference!

CORRECTION; Will advises me he used his 100-300mm.

Check out his site for a really superior image.

Really great shot MJ. I've never seen a snail bathing before but I reckon the forc of the water falling must have a bit of an effect on that fella's back?

I think some of it is the presentation, unfortunately blogger doesn't make a decent photoblog. Even the picasa web album you can set up with blogger pictures looks much better. The price is right for blogger though!

Unique! Who would've thought a snail would shower in a stream like that? (Where's the tiny bar of soap?)

Nice capture!

I wouldn't want to wait for that guy to finish showering. You know how slowly snails move! ;-) Great shot!

This is a great image! But you're right about your son's. I see where he got the gift.
