Wednesday 21 July 2010: TOUCHY, FEELY
It was definitely a case of sunshine after the rain today as the sun was shining and the sky was blue. Yesterday's rain seems to have done a power of good to the flora and fauna down the lane, too, as it appeared to have gained a new lease of life.
I was spoilt for choice as to which photograph to enter today. My friends, the snails, were out in abundance but I held myself in check and instead took a macro shot of a Meadow Cranesbill flower and one of a lovely looking orange coloured insect on a Cow Parsley flower.
However, upon heading for home my study of 'snailology' took over and I couldn't resist capturing this shot of a snail's antena. Mr Snail was in the process of examining the large Butterbur leaf that he was resting on (I am very pleased with the way the 'fur' of the leaf has been caught on camera too) but I was lucky enough to take the picture just as he finished waving his antenae about.
I love the macro facility on my camera as it has opened my eyes to so much that I had, previously, taken for granted.
