Tiny But Perfectly Formed

Just about to put some weeds in the green waste wheelie bin when I spotted this tiny snail on the lid. Fully extended is was no more than 12 mm long. The body was almost transparent as it stretched out moving from rain drop to rain drop.

I was surprised how fast it could move. Wait for Friday to see that.

  2. Great shots. I think it is a baby Garden Snail.
    You have inspired me to take some more snail shots. There are lots of white lipped snails here that are only a few millimeters long.
