Slowly the little snail makes its way along the dry, curled stick...

Hi Claudia,
Greatly capturing this small nail climbs on a stick. Interesting, how this animal can manage its balance. Super shot. Nice picture.

What a nice close-up ! The composition is simple and smart. The good DOF gives a neutral background. The snail seems merged with the branch... Congratulations Claudia and TFS.

Hi Claudia, they certainly stick on don't they! Good composition and the green BG makes the little fellow stand out very well. Good job!

Hello Claudie, excllent colors, Bg, POV DOF Perfect details, Great work, TFS Kyle

Hi Claudia,

This is very well done. It is like the branch was an extension of its body :) Well composed with great details. TFS,


Excellent shot Claudia,
The details are nice, clear and sharp.
Good colours, lighting and exposure. DOF is spot on and the POV is good.
Well composed and nicely framed.
Thanks for posting, have a great week

Hi Claudia!
I like this shot very much. In general I'm a big fan of shots showing the main subject against perfectly blurred natural background, like in this case. I like your simple, yet visually engaging composition. The fact that the snail blends somewhat with the stick is interesting enough, because it almost forces the viever to take a really good look at the image. Very well chosen POV and exposure. Congratulations,
