Snail Pace

For some reason, we are getting overrun with snails this year. There are very few times that you can walk outside a not see either the full snail or the shell they’ve left behind. I’m thrilled for the photo opportunities, but I just don’t remember ever seeing so many of them before. The few minutes I was outside this morning taking photos, I saw 6 or 8 of them just around my back patio. These are two that were hanging out on the edge and just outside of my patio. The grass was still wet and dewy so I really didn’t want to step out any farther than that because I was too lazy to get my shoes on first.

Yard Friend

I was walking around in the yard the other day taking pictures. I have no clue why I decided to look down at that exact moment, but if I hadn’t, I would have stepped on this little guy. I almost didn’t even notice him when I looked. He was just hanging out in the grass, snuggled between the blades just enough to be overlooked.
